We want to share with you our submission on the Ontario Budget which emphasizes issues relating to Long-Term Care.
We appreciate that important investments were announced by the current government in 2023 to improve long-term care homes. However, the long-term care system itself has long-standing challenges; significant attention and investment is required to bring it up to the high quality, safe and stable standard its residents require.
Our Budget Recommendations fall into three categories:
- Increase Accountability and Enforcement
- Advance Quality and Safety of Care
- Expand not-for profit and municipal LTC to Meet the Growing Need
Public consultations continue until the end of this month, so there is still time for you to send a message about the importance of increased funding in Long-Term Care Homes and the Long-Term Care sector as a whole. See link below. You can also send a message to your local MPP or to the Minister of Long-Term Care.

Deadline: January 31, 2024
