OANHSS is the provincial association representing not-for-profit providers of long term care, services and housing for seniors. Members include municipal, charitable and non-profit long term care homes, seniors’ housing projects and community service agencies. Member organizations serve over 36,000 long term care residents annually and operate over 8,000 seniors’ housing units across the province.

The Association was founded in 1919 as an association for managers and matrons of the aged and infirm.

Today our mission is to represent and support our members in providing a continuum of quality not-for-profit long term care, seniors’ community services and housing.

Members are located throughout the province. They may be stand alone projects or part of a continuum of care or “campus” setting that could include a range of services such as a long term home, independent living apartments, and support service programs.

The Association operates independent of government and funding comes primarily from member fees and revenue generated through programs and services.
