Lisa Levin, CEO of AdvantAge Ontario, released the following statement on the Ontario government’s throne speech.
“AdvantAge Ontario, the voice for not-for-profit and municipal long-term care in Ontario, commends the government for prioritizing long-term care in today’s throne speech. We look forward to working closely with the government to ensure the province meets the unique needs of not-for-profit and municipally-owned long-term care. These homes invest every dollar, including surpluses, into increasing the level and quality of care of their residents. The vast majority of seniors, or 68 per cent, choose not-for-profit, municipally-owned and charitable homes as their first choice for long-term care. As government moves forward on the path set out in today’s speech, it is important it recognizes the difference between not-for-profit and its alternatives.”
AdvantAge Ontario has been the trusted voice for senior care for over 100 years and is the only provincial association representing the full spectrum of the senior care continuum. Our more than 400 members are located across the province and include not-for-profit, charitable, and municipal long-term care homes, seniors’ housing, assisted living in supportive housing and community service agencies.
