OANHSS is well recognized
as a 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, to gather and share
sector information and best practices, 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-oriented and quality driven.
We strive to maximize use of current technologies to keep members
informed and arm them with the knowledge and insight they need to plan
and be prepared. Through our website, e-newsletters, member updates and
alerts, we ensure a regular flow of information on current and emerging
issues and developments that impact on the work of members.
