More than 400 health-sector workers are being laid off in Ontario as the Progressive Conservative government moves to merge 20 agencies into one.

The 416 people in "back-office positions" such as communications, planning, data analytics and financial services will lose their jobs and another 409 vacant positions will be eliminated, health officials said.

The province is consolidating 14 local health integration networks, Cancer Care Ontario, eHealth Ontario and other agencies into a new organization called Ontario Health.
