As the provincial advisor on the quality of health care, Health Quality Ontario plays a role in facilitating patient engagement throughout all aspects of the health system. Working with patients, families and health providers, we gather and develop tools and resources to support their engagement efforts. 

We update these resources on an ongoing basis and include tools created by Health Quality Ontario, as well resources from expert sources. For more information about these tools and resources or other patient engagement best practices, please email
