Welcome!

The Ontario Long Term Care Association is the largest association of long-term care providers in Canada and the only association that represents the full mix of long-term care operators – private, not-for-profit, charitable, and municipal. We represent nearly 70% of Ontario’s 630 long-term care homes, located in communities across the province. Our members provide care and accommodation services to more than 70,000 residents annually.

Building better long-term care

With more than 600 homes across the province, long-term care has been and will continue to be a safe and dependable support for seniors and their families. Today's seniors have complex medical needs that must be supported by the health system they have grown to depend on. Over the next decade it is expected that the number of seniors will grow by 50%, and by extension, so will the demands for long-term care services. The sector is doing its part, but cannot meet this challenge head on if we aren’t supported for it. We have solutions. Read our action plan to ensure better seniors' care.

Provincial and LHIN dashboards

We're pleased to share a series of dashboards we have developed that include data related to resident demographics, quality indicators, waitlist, wait times and more, within each Local Health Integration Network in addition to an overall province-wide dashboard. These dashboards are meant to help you gain a better understanding of what long-term care looks like in your own community and how regional homes are faring when it comes to factors such as wait lists and quality improvement. Visit our long-term care facts and figures page to view all of the dashboards.
