The Alliance has provided written submissions this week for the following bills that are tabled at the Ontario Legislative Assembly:
Ontario government’s paid sick leave legislation doesn’t go far enough and too many workplaces remain open: Workers need protection that provides flexible paid sick leave for illnesses, to self-isolate and to get vaccinated
TORONTO – April 30 – Simply put, this just isn’t enough. As well, far too many workplaces are still classified as “essential” in Ontario, putting workers, their families, and the stability of our health system at risk.
Primary Care Collaborative calls for more supports for essential workers and workplaces, more robust community vaccination rollout & isolation supports
Toronto – April 17, 2021 – The organizations of the Primary Care Collaborative echo the alarms being sounded by our healthcare and public health colleagues since Friday. There was no doubt given the modelling from the Ontario COVID-19 Science Table Advisory Board on Friday afternoon that additional measures were and are necessary to help slow the spread of the virus in our province, particularly the spread of the more contagious and deadly Variants of Concern.
We’re inviting you to join the Alliance for Healthier Communities: Our new Community Health Equity Builder Program gives individuals and organizations access to health equity resources and a concrete way to help advance equity
TORONTO – April 13, 2020 – Throughout COVID-19, we’ve seen the devastation in marginalized communities caused by health inequities and barriers, including systemic racism, poverty, isolation, lack of housing and homelessness, precarious work, as well as other factors related to the determinants of health. Many people wonder what they can do to help effect change, and what steps they can take to begin.
Primary Care Collaborative welcomes the Ontario government’s stay at home order, mobile clinics, calls for more measures to protect marginalized populations
The Primary Care Collaborative welcomes the Ontario government’s announcement of new provincial measures to stop the alarming spread of COVID-19. While the vaccine rollout continues across the province, we are in a race against the variants, and bold action was needed to protect all Ontarians, particularly those most marginalized. We recognize the collective exhaustion with COVID-19 restrictions, including among primary care providers, yet the stay-at-home order is necessary if we are to turn the tide on the pandemic.
Ontario needs a Stay-at-Home order, community vaccination plans, and paid sick leave for ALL workers to stop spread of COVID-19 variants, reduce the burden on health care
COVID-19 shows the vital roles primary care providers play every day for community health and wellbeing and health system cooperation in Ontario
The murders committed in Atlanta recently demonstrate the violence and risk of murder that racialized women and migrant sex workers face everywhere, including in Canada, as political and social identities combine into unique modes of racial discrimination and hatred.
This is the full text of the Alliance's 2021 Ontario Budget submission, as presented to the government earlier this year.

Dear Premier Ford,
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the evidence has become clear: paid sick leave is essential to protecting our province from the catastrophic impacts of unchecked virus transmission, and its toll on marginalized populations.
