Central West LHIN
A mosaic of geographic and cultural diversity, the Central West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is responsible for the planning, funding, integration and monitoring of health care services, and for the delivery of home and community care services, in the areas of Brampton, Caledon, Dufferin, Malton, north Etobicoke and west Woodbridge.
Having grown substantially over the past decade, from 740,000 residents in 2006 to over 922,000 in 2016, Central West LHIN residents now account for seven per cent of Ontario’s total population. With the highest projected growth rate in the province (over 17,000 new residents each year), the LHIN’s population is expected to grow to almost 1.1 million by 2025.
Not only is the LHIN population growing, it is aging. By 2025, the population of seniors (those aged 65 or older) is expected to increase by 62 per cent, from 111,000 to 180,000. Meanwhile, as one of the most geographically and culturally diverse LHINs in the province, the Central West LHIN has the highest (over 63 per cent) visible minority population.
Forty-eight percent of LHIN residents are immigrants, six per cent of whom are new to Canada within five years. Only 57 per cent of all LHIN residents report English as their first language, the second lowest rate in the province, and four per cent of residents report no knowledge of English or French.
The LHIN is also home to over 13,500 residents whose first official language is French.
