The aim of the Champlain LHIN is to help coordinate health services so that people receive the care they need and deserve in a timely way.
The LHIN does not provide services directly. Rather, our mandate is to ensure the services are well organized, appropriately funded and meet the needs of residents of all ages. The Champlain LHIN plans, coordinates and funds health services in the following health sectors:
- Community Care Access Centre (CCAC or home care)
- Addictions and Mental Health Agencies
- Community Support Services (such as Meals on Wheels)
- Community Health Centres (CHCs)
- Long-term Care Homes
CCAC help provide home care, which are services at home for those recovering from illness or injury, and for those with chronic illness or disability. CCACs also provide in-school services to children with disabilities so they can fully participate in school.

Following a brain injury, the academic needs of students often change and schools may need to find different ways of supporting them. The Education Act requires that all school boards provide special education programming for pupils with 'exceptional' status. Each board is required to establish an Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) whose role is to decide on whether a student is identified as 'exceptional' or not and if so to decide on appropriate resources for the student. The Ministry of Education hosts a web page providing details on the procedures used in defining a pupil as 'exceptional', how placement decisions are made, how decisions may be appealed when the parent does not agree with the IPRC's decision, and more.
