The Ontario Long Term Care Association is the largest association of long-term care providers in Canada and the only association that represents the full mix of long-term care operators – private, not-for-profit, charitable, and municipal. We represent nearly 70% of Ontario’s 630 long-term care homes, located in communities across the province. Our members provide care and accommodation services to more than 70,000 residents annually.

More Care. Better Care. 

More beds, modernized homes, and more staff are needed if Ontario is going to keep up with the growing needs of seniors. This year, more than 32,000 seniors remain on a waiting list to get access to long-term care services – a number that has grown substantially from last year. On top of the growing demand for care, the needs of residents continue to grow. The Association's action plan for better seniors' care addresses the complex care needs of Ontario’s seniors and the growing demand for care. The time for action is now.
