About this BPSO:

Home care was established in Ontario in 1970 and is a fast-growing part of the formal health-care system. Since its beginnings, Ontario's home care system has gone through many changes; evolving and growing to become the comprehensive system that it is today.

In 1996, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care established CCACs to provide a first point of contact for public access to government-funded home care, community services and long-term care homes. At that time, 43 CCACs were established in communities across the province.
