Ontario Launches Portal to Match Health Care Workers with Health Care Employers
Date: April 7, 2020
On April 7, 2020, the Ontario government announced that it is launching the “Health Workforce Matching Portal” (Portal). The Portal will enable available health care workers to assist in the province’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic by matching those workers with employers, such as hospitals, clinics and assessment centres, to help, for example, with public health functions such as case and contact management.
The health care workers would include “retired or non-active health care professionals, internationally educated health care professionals, students, and volunteers with health care experience.”
The government states that interested employers and health care workers can visit the Portal, which will match the needs of the employers with the skills of the health care workers.
