Councils interested in joining the OARC are asked to pay a nominal annual fee to support the Association. The fee is a sliding one, based on the size of the home, and ranges from $50 for homes with under 50 beds, to a $150 fee for homes with over 200 beds.
Even with the support of every Home in the province, this fee as it stands would never support the Association and its activities. However, support from Councils through payment of the annual fee shows that we do indeed have the support of Councils across the province.
The Provincial Government
Our provincial government, through the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care supports us with a continuing annual grant. We are appreciative of this funding, and believe that it shows that government believes as we do in the rights of residents to have a voice in their care, and in their daily lives in their Homes.
In recent years, we have begun to market our publications to colleges, universities and to other groups and organizations. Occasionally we receive donations, and we continue to explore the possibilities of funding from other sources.
