Join our Golf Tournament Wine Tour

Our annual Golf Tournament is a great day of fun and networking, with all proceeds benefiting the Ontario Long Term Care Association's Education Fund, which provides financial assistance to staff in member homes pursuing continuing education initiatives to enhance their knowledge and skills in long-term care. Our tournament is now SOLD OUT, but we still have lots of space left at our Wine Tour event! Join us for a private tour, tasting and culinary experience overlooking the Adamo Estate's beautiful vines, right next door to Hockley Valley where the Golf Tournament is taking place!

More Care. Better Care. 

More beds, modernized homes, and more staff are needed if Ontario is going to keep up with the growing needs of seniors. This year, more than 32,000 seniors remain on a waiting list to get access to long-term care services – a number that has grown substantially from last year. On top of the growing demand for care, the needs of residents continue to grow. The Association's action plan for better seniors' care addresses the complex care needs of Ontario’s seniors and the growing demand for care. The time for action is now.
