Ontario’s Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission

Ontario’s Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission

The Commissioners of Ontario’s Long-Term Care COVID-19 Commission has a mandate to investigate how and why COVID-19 spread in long-term care homes, what was done to prevent the spread, and the impact of key elements of the existing system on the spread.

It has the power to consider any further areas where the government should take action to help prevent the future spread of disease in long-term care homes.

The Commission has been asked by the government to submit a final report by next April 30, 2021.

The Commission will be doing this work very quickly as the entire health care system prepares for a possible second wave of COVID-19.

The long-term care sector, and the health system as a whole, will also be responding to the findings and the recommendations of the Public Inquiry into the Safety and Security of the Residents in the Long-Term Care Homes System.

OARC is dedicated to sharing residents’ voices directly with the Commission.  As residents in long-term care homes, OARC’s Board shared their lived experience of this pandemic in long-term care homes with the Commissioners on September 26, 2020 – transcript available here
