Are You a Health Worker in Ontario? Help Us Investigate Ontario’s Health Care Crisis.

We’re talking to front line health workers to help us investigate the crisis in Ontario’s health care system

Across Ontario, the province’s health system is facing serious strain.

A recent poll found 43% of Ontario residents had challenges accessing health care — the highest response rate of any province in Canada.

Meanwhile, news headlines keep highlighting problems with health facilities that are short-staffed and underfunded, even including children’s hospitals, leading to long wait-times, delays for vulnerable patients and burnt out health workers.

No one has a better picture of what’s wrong with Ontario’s health care system than the health workers on the frontlines of this crisis.

That’s why PressProgress wants to hear first-hand stories and insights from Ontario health workers to help us investigate underreported problems that are flying under the radar and not getting enough attention in the media.

Get in touch with us:

  • If you have first-hand information or insights into problems with Ontario’s health care system that aren’t getting the attention they deserve.
  • If you have concerns about conditions in Ontario’s health care facilities that could pose risks to the health and safety of patients and other workers.
  • If you’re seeing breakdowns caused by lack of resources, understaffing or other labour problems at your hospital or health facility.
