Health System Improvement Proposals

The Champlain LHIN works with multiple partners and networks to determine program priorities.

The LHIN welcomes Health System Improvement Proposals (HSIPs) from providers; however, the amount of funding available for unsolicited requests this year is minimal.

As a result, for 2020-21, the LHIN:

  • Will not be in a position to consider annualized, base-funding proposals through the unsolicited HSIP process. Such requests, if submitted, will help inform future planning, but will not be formally evaluate at this time.
  • Will consider funding requests for urgent and emergency situations, as we receive them.

Please do not use an HSIP form to request reallocation of in-year surpluses. These should be discussed with your LHIN Senior Accountability Specialist.

If you are unsure whether your request needs an HSIP, contact your LHIN Senior Accountability Specialist.


To ensure your proposal is as strong as possible, you need to complete all sections of the HSIP form. The LHIN uses the information you provide to evaluate and score your proposal.

Evaluation results are used to help prioritize projects for funding. In addition to being reviewed for approval in the current fiscal year, HSIP submissions are also used to help identify priorities for future annual business plans.
