The Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committees (PIDAC) provide expert advice, develop evidence-based knowledge products (best practice documents) and provide broad-based field advice. These advisory committees draw on the expertise of health care professionals in the areas of communicable and infectious disease, infection prevention and control, immunization, epidemiology, public health, occupational health and safety and veterinary medicine. PIDAC meets regularly throughout the year for full-day meetings. Teleconference and video conference options are provided to those who cannot attend meetings in person. Frequency of meetings varies by committee.

Public Health Ontario recognizes that many external advisors may not be completely free of actual, potential or perceived conflict of interest since such external advisors may have affiliations with regulated industries, the scientific community, or special interest groups which receive funding from industry. Public Health Ontario has developed conflict of interest rules that are intended to achieve a reasonable balance between those divergent considerations and enabling Public Health Ontario to gain from the expertise of external advisors while avoiding or mitigating conflict of interest. To this end, each candidate will be asked to complete a conflict of interest disclosure form as part of the application process.
