Fiscal Accountability and Transparency

Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) is a provincial access and privacy legislation that applies to hospitals effective January 1, 2012.  FIPPA establishes a general right of access to records in the custody or control of hospitals from January 1, 2007 onward for the purposes of accountability and transparency.

The FOI Office at SickKids is responsible for processing all FOI requests.

Service Accountability Agreements
Each year, SickKids enters into Service Accountability Agreements with the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (Toronto Central LHIN). The agreements set out SickKids’ responsibilities for ongoing advancement of the health system. Ontario's LHINs are required under the Local Health Services Integration Act, 2006, to negotiate a Service Accountability Agreement for each Health Service Provider they fund.

As a Health Service Provider that cares for patients across the spectrum, from emergency care to mental health services, SickKids is  required to complete a Hospital Service Accountability Agreement and a Multi-Sector Service Accountability Agreement.
