- Enhance Provincial capital funding predictability and supply on-going assist for capital upkeep;
- Promote and assist useful resource sharing between long-term care properties; and

“Lengthy-term care is a key precedence for the Caucus and EOWC Members are important companions within the supply of long-term care,” said EOWC Chair Debbie Robinson. “Once I consider long-term care and the way the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our residents and households, we should be certain that systemic points which were recognized throughout the sector are addressed. The EOWC has demonstrated that we’re a keen companion and are in a position to present on-the-ground management to implement modifications.”
There are 15 long-term care services operated by EOWC members, representing 2,386 licenced long-term care beds.
