Aphasia Institute Strategic Plan 2014 – 2017
In 2013, the Aphasia Institute engaged in a strategic planning process involving the Board of Directors, management, staff and external stakeholders. The process was intended to set a clear direction given opportunities and challenges. The goal was that Institute Board and staff develop and share a common organizational vision, to be clear regarding what the Aphasia Institute can offer to its clients and stakeholders, and to agree on strategy. This Strategic Plan will guide our work over the next three years. Its directions are drawn from surveys, consultations, and conversations with our staff, Board, and a wide variety of stakeholders. From these discussions, we were elated to once again be reminded that the Aphasia Institute is a credible leader in the field of aphasia. We also learned that while much has been accomplished, much remains to be done. Over the next three years we are committed to building on our strengths and responding to opportunities.

Multi-sector Accountability Agreement (M-SAA) 2009-2011
The Central LHIN Board of Directors approved our Multi-Sector Accountability Agreement for fiscal years 2014-15, 2015-16, and 2016-17. This is a public document. Click here to review our approved M-SAA.
The goal of the M-SAA is to improve access and outcome for residents of Ontario and to enable a financially viable health system given the existing resources. Agencies are now committed to service levels,
must produce balanced budgets and meet performance indicators.
Our M-SAA is between Central LHIN and Aphasia Institute.
Community mental health and addictions agencies (CMH&A), community care access centres (CCAC), community health centres (CHC) and community support service (CSS) agencies are all required to submitted their agreements. Previous agreements for funding of health services were with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
The funds from the LHIN account for approximately 63% of the agency’s overall income. Grants, donations and fees make up the rest of our operating budget.
