Concerned Friends sends the Premier and Ministers of Health and Long-Term Care a Call to Action in five key areas; Staffing, Annual Resident Quality Inspections, Advisory Group, Infection Control and National Standards.

“We stand united with the many groups including doctors voicing outrage over the government’s failure to ‘put an iron ring around’ our most vulnerable population.

The neglect, underfunding, overcrowding, and lack of appropriate government oversight of Ontario’s long-term care (LTC) facilities is tragic and has unfortunately existed for decades. Sadly, the situation has only worsened with the COVID-19 pandemic, which struck residents living in these facilities the hardest, resulting in thousands of needless deaths.” See the letter here Concerned Friends Open Letter.
