Meet the Board

The Ontario Association of Residents’ Councils (OARC) is managed by a working Board of Directors, all of whom are residents of long-term care homes and elected by OARC member homes across Ontario. Board Directors and Delegate members volunteer their time and talents to serve on the OARC Board and are active participants on the Residents’ Council leadership teams in their own respective homes. We are always looking for strong resident leaders to lend their skills, lived experience and expertise to our Board. For more information about becoming an OARC Board member please contact Julie Garvey, Administrator and Finance Manager, jgarvey@ontarc.com
