Notice- Municipal Forum replaces Municipal Representatives on Hospital Board

Notice- Municipal Forum replaces Municipal Representatives on Hospital Board 

CLEARVIEW, ON – March 12, 2018 – The five municipalities of Collingwood, Clearview Township, Grey Highlands, The Blue Mountains, Wasaga Beach and the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital are currently in the process of transitioning its Mayors’ Forum to a Municipal Forum, as the hospital, following best practice around the province, moves away from having municipal representatives on the Board of Trustees effective July 12, 2018. These members will be replaced by individuals from across the region selected on the basis of the skills and experience they bring to the Board.

Following a collaborative meeting on February 15, 2018, all agreed to build upon and strengthen the current Mayors’ Forum, which has been in place for almost three years.

Moving forward, the Municipal Forum will allow the five municipalities and the two counties to continue in an advisory capacity to the hospital, with open and progressive two-way conversation, and where appropriate, input into the hospital’s decision making process on matters which could impact the communities at large.

Further details are currently being refined as to the frequency of meetings and the Terms of Reference, and should be in place over the next couple of months.


For more information or to arrange an interview with our Mayor please Tim Hendry, Communications and Marketing Coordinator at (705) 428-6230 ext. 240 or email


“We look forward to continuing to work with the CGMH and our municipal partners to ensure the best local health care for our communities and our visitors. We know that the staff at CGMH provide excellent health care services, and we are committed to supporting their team through the Municipal Forum.” - Mayor Sandra Cooper, Town of Collingwood.

“I look forward to the improved structure including the detailed Terms of Reference for the Municipal Forum. I believe that these changes will help guide all of the community representatives forward with strong collaboration for the ongoing operations of the current facility and the potential build of the new hospital which will benefit all neighbouring communities and residents.” - Mayor Christopher Vanderkruys, Township of Clearview

“Working with local municipalities and our respective counties to support the work of CGMH has been an important priority for the Town. In this advisory role, I will continue to advocate for the healthcare needs of our community. I look forward to working with our partners in other municipalities as we work to achieve the CGMH vision and goals for improving patient care across our region.” - Mayor John McKean, Town of The Blue Mountains

“The Town of Wasaga Beach welcomes these changes to the Board and looks forward to a continued positive working relationship with the hospital. Board members provide a valuable service in terms of ensuring our hospital is prepared to meet the needs of our region today and in the future. We are grateful for the commitment made by all of our Board representatives.” - Mayor Brian Smith, Town of Wasaga Beach

“I think this is a wonderful opportunity and appreciate the collaboration of the municipalities and counties, as we transition to this new forum.” - Norah Holder, President and CEO, Collingwood General and Marine Hospital
