Community Health Ontario (CHO)
The members of Community Health Ontario (CHO) affirm their commitment to strong, community-based services that are integrated and coordinated with the acute care system, and a health system that addresses the social determinants of health as the key to a healthy society. Together the three founding members of CHO represent the majority of not-for-profit home and community support, mental health and addictions, and community-governed primary health care providers in Ontario. They are the Association of Ontario Health Centres (AOHC), the Ontario Community Support Association (OCSA), and the Ontario Federation of Community Mental Health and Addiction Programs (OFCMHAP). OFCMHAP has since amalgamated with Addictions Ontario to become Addictions and Mental Health Ontario (AMHO).
