BECOME A MEMBER

Concerned Friends membership is open to the public and provides supporters with a way to become involved with the governance of the organization. Members are invited to participate in our Annual General Meeting where they hold voting rights. Members receive updates on Concerned Friends’ activities, news and events.

Our membership fees are a small, but important source of revenue as they assist Concerned Friends in carrying out our mandate. In addition, a large membership base is an important indicator that there is a foundation of community belief in our work.

Becoming a Concerned Friend is about being a part of a supportive community of people who – in one way or another – have been impacted by the long-term care system in Ontario. Members of this community have come together to build a movement that uplifts the standard of care and quality of life for all seniors living in long-term care by;

  • Providing compassionate support to others
  • Sharing expertise, stories, ideas and tips
  • Listening and learning from others
  • Staying aware of issues and developments in the sector
  • Giving time, talent or money
  • Supporting advocacy efforts in whatever ways they can

As we continue to shine a light on the essential changes needed, we welcome you to “Add your voice to ours.”
