Our elderly loved ones deserve better supports and protections during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ontario’s New Democrats are calling on the provincial government to:
- Create a $5 million fund for more staff, supplies, equipment and infection control for seniors living in supportive and assistive living facilities in Ontario
- Suspend medication dispensing fees and co-pays for Ontarians 65 and older
- Ban fee hikes or new fees in long-term care and retirement homes
- Provide a province-wide plan for family visitation at long-term care homes, retirement homes and hospitals that includes best practices in preventing COVID-19 transmission
Seniors have spent their lifetimes helping build our province, now we must ensure they have the support and protections they need during these difficult times.
Add your name to support senior Ontarians.
