ONA’s Submissions to Government

An important component to any government relations activity is providing an official submission to the government. This gives an “on-the-record” account of an organization’s response to a particular topic or issue.

ONA makes submissions to the provincial government and to committees of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario on a range of topics, to influence change and create dialogue. From the annual budget cycle to changes to health-care services and practices, ONA provides a front-line nurses’ voice on the issue.
