Through Our Eyes: Bringing the Residents’ Bill of Rights Alive

Through Our Eyes

Working together, this unique program guides long-term care home teams of staff and residents to co-develop and co-facilitate education sessions about the Residents’ Bill of Rights (LTCHA 2007). The program provides educators with a step-by-step guide, videos, exercises and resources to develop the education.

Residents' Bill of Rights: Your rights if you live in a long-term care home

The “Residents' Bill of Rights” booklet is produced by Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO).  This booklet provides plain language interpretations and examples of the 29 Residents' Bill of Rights found in the Fixing Long-Term Care Act (2021).  Used by many Residents’ Councils, this resource is free and easily accessed at the CLEO website.  To order FREE copies visit www.cleo.on.ca or call CLEO at 416-408-4420
