The Consortium

Advocacy

Provincial

Effective partnering with other provincial associations (OHLA) and key groups within the hospitals with similar interests in EBP (i.e. Education, Research) to promote access to and train on quality health information and evidence.

National

Partner with National Library Organizations (e.g. CHLA) on policy issues affecting healthcare

International

Support International Library Organizations as it pertains to access to Health Information and evidence. (i.e. IFLA, EAHIL)
