The IGOPP presents a position paper on Bill 127

An Act to improve the management of the health and social services network

The IGPPO approves several elements in the bill, that are in line with the recommendations contained in its report, published in 2008, on governance in Quebec public sector health and social services establishments.

However, the IGPPO believes that the four following parts of the bill should be modified, in order to improve governance in the network:

  • The strategic orientations, priorities and the organization of services (articles 30, 31 and 39)
  • Accountability and the annual report (art. 25 and 42)
  • The nomination and evaluation of the general manager (art. 43, 44 and 65)
  • Training of board of director members (art. 69)
