Our History

Hospice Palliative Care Ontario (HPCO) was formed in April 2011 when the memberships of the Hospice Association of Ontario (HAO) and the Ontario Palliative Care Association (HPCO) voted to join together. The integration of the two associations began as an idea discussed by the boards of both associations in 2007/2008, and has been welcomed by a wide range of stakeholders in Ontario. The joining of HAO and OPCA was a significant achievement for hospice palliative care in Ontario, unifying the sector’s voice to to strengthen hospice palliative care for the people of Ontario.
