The independent Commission to Investigate the Introduction and Spread of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) was created by the Government of Ontario in June, 2003, to investigate how the SARS virus came to the province, how the virus spread and how it was dealt with. It looked at all aspects of the outbreak, including measures taken to protect the public and health workers. Mr. Justice Archie Campbell of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice was appointed Commissioner.
The Commission held six days of public hearings in Toronto and conducted more than 600 confidential interviews with people connected with SARS.
