Under the Local Health System Integration Act, 2006, the Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) are required to enter into a Service Accountability Agreement .

The Service Accountability Agreement consists of a primary agreement and six schedules that outline the respective responsibilities of the LHIN and the CCAC for funding, service planning and delivery, performance, reporting and compliance with government policy.
