Community Advisory Panels (CAPs)
Our 4 CAPs
St. Michael's has four Community Advisory Panels:
- Homeless & Under-housed CAP
- Mental Health and Addictions CAP
- Women and Children's CAP
- First Nations, Métis, Inuit and Indigenous Community Advisory Panel CAP
- Each CAP has about 20 members, made up of community volunteers, patients, consumers, community agency representatives and hospital staff from front line to senior management.
- The membership ratio is about 2/3 community members and 1/3 hospital staff.
- Chairs are volunteers from the community who serve for a two-year term.
- Chairs are also members of the Community Advisory Committee which reports directly to the St. Michael's Board of Directors.
CAPs meet regularly and hold a joint CAP meeting once a year.
