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 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.

PTAC uses an online portal to process transfer requests. This online system is easy, secure, private and fast - in most cases you will receive an MT number within seconds.  To create an account, contact your designated facility PTAC administrator, or contact us at ptacsupport@ornge.ca or
