The collaboration will expand the scope of services for GBGH patients and encourage increased on-site research activities, alongside quality and safety initiatives.

Healthcare providers at GBGH will gain access to the University of Toronto’s comprehensive library resources, mentorship opportunities, and continuing education programmes through various university centres.

Moreover, the agreement opens doors for healthcare providers to engage in research and scholarship.

The University of Toronto has a history of providing clinical training through its network of academic teaching hospitals in the Toronto area, which are integral to educating a wide range of healthcare professionals.

Ontario Minister of Colleges and Universities Jill Dunlop said: “With this new partnership, Ontario’s future doctors can look forward to more high-quality, hands-on learning opportunities while improving access to much-needed care for communities in Georgian Bay.

“By expanding medical education, our government is helping more students become doctors to serve the people of Ontario, whenever and wherever they need it.”
