The Hills of Headwaters Collaborative is on its way to becoming an Ontario Health Team.
The Ministry of Health notified the local partnership which is made up of family doctors, health, social and municipal agencies.
Now, the group can proceed the next step, a full application in the Ontario Health Team process.
The Hills of Headwaters Collaborative was one of 31 submissions of a possible 150 that were selected to move to the full application process.
Christine Elliott, the Minister of Health, announced in February that there'd be a large restructuring of the health care system.
Elliott visited Dufferin County in March along with Dufferin-Caledon MPP Sylvia Jones to learn more about the integrated work being done in the area.
The Collaborative will submit its full application to the ministry by October 9th of this year.
