To champion a vibrant and innovative community support sector in an integrated health care system, for the health and well-being of our communities.


A cohesive and sustainable community support sector providing appropriate, quality, person-centred services in an integrated and accessible local health care system.


We will establish a positive collaborative culture in our work together, guided by the following values:

  • We will use a person-centred perspective as our key lens for decision making
  • We will shift focus from individual organizational accomplishment to sector and system accomplishment
  • We will operate with transparency to members and others
  • We will promote peer collaboration, partnership and engagement
  • We will work with a sense of urgency and focus on what is added value to the broader system
  • We will be inclusive of all CSS organizations providing services in Central LHIN
  • We will act as a role model for continuous improvement, best practice and good governance
  • We will maximize the use of shared resources to enable system level integration and knowledge exchange

Our History

Established in 2007, the CSS Network is a self-funded, integrated and collaborative group of community based health organizations providing community-based health services within the Central LHIN. Our members serve seniors, people with disabilities, palliative clients of all ages and the bereaved. The Network is led by a Steering Committee of eight individuals selected from amongst the CSS Network membership.
