In 2000/01 the Ontario government announced $92.5 million in new funding for long-term community services. This new funding includes $70.1 million for CCACs. During this time, the provincial government will spend more than $1.6 billion for longterm- care community-based services. Of this amount, $1.1 billion will go to CCACs. Community Care Access Centres served more than 400,000 people in 1998/99 and are estimated to serve more than 420,000 in 2000/01. The administrative funds saved by this province-wide system are reinvested in front-line health services.
