Advocacy Services


  • To advise the residents or their caregivers of their rights when living in long-term care homes
  • To advocate or support advocacy efforts when requested
  • To raise the awareness of the general public and all levels of government of the changes required in the system that manages the provision and operation of these homes
  • To improve upon Ontario's approach to long-term care provision to ensure that all residents are provided with consistent and quality medical care, psychological and therapy supports. Long-term care residents must have a chance to thrive - not just survive - and to enjoy life in nurturing environments
