The Provincial Transfer Authorization Centre (PTAC) is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and administered on its behalf by Ornge.  PTAC maintains a database of patient transfers into/out of and within the province Ontario.  In the event of an infectious disease outbreak, PTAC also offers an online tool to screen for respiratory diseases prior to inter-facility patient transport within Ontario.

If you are a healthcare facility and would like to request a medical transport number, please use the PTAC website or call the Operations Control Centre.

We have recently updated our PTAC system to ensure the patient transfer process is more efficient. We encourage healthcare providers to review share the User Tutorial Video above with your colleagues. Download the video on Vimeo
