Health Canada Consultation on Safe LTC
The Minister of Health, with the support of the Minister of Seniors, has been mandated to develop national standards on long-term care (LTC) and a Safe LTC Act to ensure seniors get the care they deserve.
Now that the national standards have been released, the Government of Canada is conducting engagement activities to inform the development of the Act.
Health Canada has launched an online questionnaire to solicit views from Canadians on:
- the quality and safety of LTC;
- the ability to meet the national LTC standards;
- opportunities to address health human resource challenges in LTC; and
- public reporting on LTC.
The online questionnaire also includes a targeted question for individuals who self-identify as Indigenous, to solicit perspectives of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people with respect to culturally safe LTC services.
The online questionnaire will be open until September 21, 2023. You can find the questionnaire HERE.
