Community Members

Your Voice Matters!

Community members include patients, clients, families, caregivers and citizens. ​The voices of community members provide a crucial contribution to the success of the Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Ontario Health Team (FLA OHT).

Two Types of Community Member Volunteers

Associate Community Members: volunteer with the FLA OHT on an as-need basis for engagement, sharing lived experience, interests, skills and abilities. These members are:

  • Willing to contribute experience and knowledge
  • Participating through email/surveys/focus groups and other opportunities 
  • Having no commitment to attend monthly meetings -they share their perspectives through other opportunities 
  • Being invited to Partnership Council's semi-annual Town Hall meetings

Community Council Members: volunteer with the FLA OHT group for a two-year term, attending monthly meetings, and sharing lived experience, interests, skills, and abilities.
