2022 Residents’ Council Week Contest

2022 Residents’ Council Week Contest

This year, we want to see your Residents’ Council and/or Resident Information board for a chance to win 1 of 3 Gift Certificates to My Activity Boards ($800 value includes custom board design and shipping) or 1 of 10 X $50 Tim Horton’s Gift Cards.                                                                                      

When visiting Long-Term Care homes across the province, the OARC team LOVES to see your Residents’ Council/Resident Information boards. Our favourite boards are located at an accessible height and location with readable materials and include important items like: Residents’ Council meeting information and minutes, photos of Resident Leaders and Council Committees, residents’ rights and quality improvement information. Bonus points for displaying your OARC membership certificate and other OARC communications.

We ask that all entries include the following:

  • A short paragraph outlining what residents like about the current Residents’ Council or Resident Information board and what areas residents would like to see enhanced on the board if they were to design a new one.
  • Submit a photo of your board along with a photo of Resident leaders/Council members.

Deadline: Submissions should be emailed to the attention of Melissa McVie at mmcvie@ontarc.com by Wednesday, September 14th, 2022.   Winners will be selected by random draw and announced during a live concert performance hosted by OARC on Friday, September 16th at 2pm. Winning Councils will be contacted directly to coordinate prizes.
