Call for Applications to Build and Redevelop Long-Term Care Beds

The Ministry of Long-Term Care is now accepting applications from current and potential operators to build new long-term care beds and redevelop existing ones in Ontario. These long-term care beds are part of the government’s commitment to build 15,000 beds and redevelop 15,000 existing beds over five years. Read the Ministry press release, Ontario one step closer to creating 15,000 new long-term care beds.

Given the LTC bed projection over the next 10 years, particularly in the North York Central, Western York Region and Eastern York Region areas, the Central LHIN is encouraging all LTC operators as well as organizations new to the long-term care sector to submit an online application by January 17, 2020. Applications must meet the current and future needs of residents in communities where they will serve.

Applicants are encouraged to:

  • Discuss proposed project and local long-term care needs with local health system partners.
  • Include more flexible care structures within their applications, such as Behavioural Support Units, enhanced convalescent care, high acuity and specialized care. 
  • Partner with others, such as retirement apartments, affordable housing, etc., to build campuses of care.

The Ministry will host information sessions for potential applicants later this month. Please check the Ministry website regularly for dates and times.

The Central LHIN Long-Term Care Profile is available to assist applicants with their submissions.

If you have any questions about the application, please email the Ministry of Long-Term Care at LTCdevelopment@ontario.ca.
