Whether you are a member of a board, municipal committee or council, or hold other responsibilities related to long-term care governance, it’s important for everyone to have a solid understanding of their fiduciary obligations and what these mean when it comes to inspections and investigations. 

This one-of-a-kind education opportunity will clarify the roles and responsibilities of governing bodies related to inspections under the Fixing Long-Term Care Act, 2021 (FLTCA). Our experts will explain how members of governing bodies can meet their obligations and maintain appropriate oversight through inspections, and provide an overview of the protections they have to carry out their work.
