SUBJECT

Q2 Financial Results


BACKGROUND

The Leadership Team of the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (“the WECHU”) monitors financial results on an on-going basis for related programs funded 100% by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services (“MCCSS”).  These programs are:

  • Healthy Babies Healthy Children Program;
  • Prenatal and Postnatal Nurse Practitioner Program.

The budgets for these programs were approved by the Board of Health for the WECHU on May 21, 2020.  On October 30, 2020, the budgets were formally submitted to the MCCSS along with financial information for the period April 1, 2020 to September 30, 2020.  Details of that submission is included in the narrative below.

Of noteworthy mention is the following:

  • The MCCSS required that financial information for the aforementioned programs, both budget and year-to-date actuals, be reported on a combined basis.  For consistency with the WECHU’s presentation of the 2020/2021 budgets on May 21, 2020, the WECHU has continued to report these programs separately.
  • The prior year’s comparative information for the aforementioned programs has not been presented due to the change the MCCSS change in fiscal years (was January to December; now April to March).

On September 30, 2020, the MCCSS launched the Transfer Payment Ontario (TPON) system.  The TPON will enhanced transfer payment business processes and reduce administrative burden on service providers, enhance efficiency and improve outcomes and the overall client experience.  More specifically, transfer payment recipients such as the WECHU will be able to submit financial and non-financial reporting requirements to the MCCSS on-line.
