Innovative solutions to emerging challenges were implemented, capitalizing on existing strengths. Galvanized by a cultural shift away from many embedded assumptions and laboured decision-making processes, the pandemic accelerated the momentum towards integrated care and exacerbated the challenges where care is more fragmented.

The objective of this report is to ensure that reforms either implemented during or revoked after the COVID-19 pandemic are aligned with the changes necessary to achieve sustainable high quality care across the province, with
a specific focus on the role of primary care. In commiting to improving the provincial health system, it is important to reflect on the gains that rapid change has afforded us, without losing sight of the essential foundational elements required for a high functioning healthcare system.
