The best association for not-for-profit providers.

We are the association of not-for-profit long-term care, seniors’ housing and services for seniors in Ontario.

For more than 100 years, we have been influential in advocating government policies for senior care, dynamic in building strong community relationships, and rigorous in our business practices and accountability.

AdvantAge Ontario works on behalf of our members to help all stakeholders understand what the not-for-profit approach means and what it can do for the future of senior care.

Benefits of Full Membership 

AdvantAge Ontario is well recognized as the champion of not-for-profit long-term care, seniors’ community services, and housing. We facilitate the coming together of organizations that are committed to providing high quality care, services and accommodation for seniors in Ontario. Members rely on us to represent and communicate their needs and interests to government, to help them interpret relevant legislation, to work with them to increase public awareness of the value of not-for-profit delivery, and to use our collective expertise to influence public policy. Most importantly, they rely on us to work with funders and other provider and consumer groups to ensure that services for seniors are effective, resident-centred and quality driven.

Through our newsletter, member updates and alerts, and monthly CEO webinar, we ensure a regular flow of information on current and emerging issues and developments that impact the work of members.
