Resident Forums

Resident Forums: A Place for Connecting with Peers

OARC facilitates Long-Term Care (LTC) Resident Forums for residents to connect virtually for peer support and sharing. OARC-supported forums are designed to facilitate inclusion and community while providing some reassurance and support from peers who are navigating similar life changes brought about by COVID-19. They are a place to meet new friends, ask questions, share concerns and successes and stay informed. 

The Forums are 45-minutes long, held weekly on Thursday (alternating mornings/afternoon timeslots) and co-facilitated with an OARC Board member (a LTC resident leader) and an OARC team member.  Register Here:


  • These forums are for residents living in Ontario LTC homes only
  • Each forum is limited to a maximum of 10 residents
  • Forums run on the GoToTraining platform
  • Residents may participate in the forums using a computer, tablet device or smartphone or by phoning in on our toll-free phone line (shared upon registration)
  • The registration process will require residents to enter an associated email address – we ask that team members and home administration assist interested residents with this process as necessary
  • Ongoing participation in the Forums is encouraged, however, we ask that residents come back to join us on a monthly basis, rather than weekly, to allow other residents the chance to participate
  • The forums provide a venue for peer to peer support and are not formal counseling or therapy
