BURLINGTON, ON — Nov. 1, 2022 — The Burlington Ontario Health Team brings together members of the community who have a variety of experiences accessing local healthcare and community supports. Input from local residents is key to ensuring that recommendations for quality health care in Burlington are focused on meeting the needs of individuals receiving care in Burlington.

The BOHT invites Burlington residents to volunteer as a Community Advisor if you have experience navigating our local health care as a patient, a family member, or caregiver. Participation may include the BOHT Community Wellness Council, committees, working groups, or engagement in program design and evaluation. We welcome a broad scope of involvement from different parts of the community, ages, cultures, and backgrounds. All applications will be reviewed with an equity, diversity and inclusion lens.

We invite you to apply for this unique role as a BOHT Community Advisor. Please complete the application form by Nov. 30 online or by calling 905-517-9382. Get involved! We hope you’ll take advantage of this unique opportunity to provide your valued input to making our local health care the best it can be.

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.


A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
