Overcrowdedness, lack of proper protective gear, poorly paid staff, and weakened regulations have placed long-term care homes at the epicentre of the COVID19 pandemic: 79 percent of COVID19 deaths in Canada are linked to long-term care -- and that number is rising.1

The poor state of long-term care homes in Canada has been a crisis brewing beneath the surface for years -- but now, COVID19 is shining a spotlight on these systemic problems, and we can’t ignore them any longer.

We need to put immediate protections in place for seniors in these homes and ensure that workers have the support, tools and personal protective equipment they need to safely provide care. But with the death toll rising daily, we need to act fast.

Will you sign the petition calling on your premier and Prime Minister Trudeau to immediately protect seniors so that the needless loss of lives never happens again?
 

Prime Minister Trudeau and Premiers,

We demand the best in care for our seniors in long-term care homes now.

We ask that you:
- Ensure all LTC workers have the support, tools and personal protective equipment they need to safely provide care.
- Shore up the standards, principles and funding governing long term homes so seniors get the care they need and this never happens again.
