Who We Serve

As part of the province’s comprehensive plan Keeping Ontarians Safe: Preparing for Future Waves of COVID-19, local networks of IPAC expertise (IPAC Hubs) are being developed across the health system, which have been asked to work to enhance IPAC practices in community based, congregate living organizations/settings. These organizations/settings include:

  • Long-term care homes
  • Retirement homes
  • Residential settings funded by the Ministry of Health (MOH)
  • Residential settings for adults and children funded by Ministry of Children
  • Community and Social Services (MCCSS)
  • Shelters
  • Supportive housing

Through these new province-wide networks, you will be able to access IPAC expertise, collaborative assistance and just-in-time advice, guidance, and direct support on IPAC practices.

IPAC Hubs will work in coordination with Hub partners (including local hospitals, public health units, Public Health Ontario and others) to deliver the following services based on local needs and priorities, including but not limited to the following:

  • Education and Training
  • Communities of Practice
  • Supportive visits and consults
  • Best Practice Recommendations and Implementation Support
  • Coaching/Mentoring on IPAC Practices
  • Mock tracers
