I call on the federal government to act urgently to ensure all seniors have the care they need by:
– Working with provinces to bring all long-term care homes into  
public hands under the Canada Health Act.
– Creating a coordinated seniors’ care strategy to be implemented in  
all provinces and territories that puts protections in place for 
seniors in these homes.
– Ensuring all seniors’ care home workers have the support, tools 
and personal protective equipment they need to safely provide 
care.
People are always more important than profits. Caring for seniors and their caregivers is an essential part of our health care system that requires strong public oversight and funding. We can afford to treat them better.
