Ontario To Appoint New Chief Medical Officer of Health

Published on May 31, 2021

Today, Monday, May 31, 2021, the government tabled a motion in the Legislature to appoint Dr. Kieran Moore as the province’s next Chief Medical Officer of Health to succeed Dr. David Williams upon his retirement on June 25, 2021.


As we continue to vaccinate more Ontarians and embark on our Roadmap to Reopen in the coming weeks, Dr. Moore’s years of experience working in public health will be crucial as we begin to gradually lift public health measures.


To ensure a seamless transition into his new role, Dr. Moore will work alongside Dr. Williams for a few weeks, starting Monday, June 7, 2021.


On behalf of the people of Newmarket-Aurora and all of Ontario, we thank Dr. Williams for his dedication to safeguarding the health and safety of Ontarians during his many years of service, and for his experienced leadership at the helm of the province’s pandemic response to protect our communities from COVID-19 and its devastating impacts.
