The Provincial HSJCC is committed to identifying provincial service and policy issues across Ontario, making recommendations to address such issues and identifying system solutions to appropriate government and other provincial bodies. As such, the Provincial HSJCC often participates in consultations and prepares submissions to help address issues and advance improvements to the human services and justice coordination efforts of the HSJCCs and the Government of Ontario.
In December 2020, the HSJCC published a new report by Ontario’s leading experts on housing, justice, and mental health and addictions that outlines how existing supportive housing could more effectively meet the needs of justice-involved individuals and reduce strain on the health and justice systems.

The HSJCC has also made recent submissions regarding issues exacerbated during COVID-19 which you can find on their COVID-19 updates page.
