- 15, 2021 /CNW/ – The Canadian Association for Long Term Care (CALTC), CanAge, Canadian Nurses Association and HealthCareCAN are calling on all federal parties to champion a new dedicated federal transfer to improve long-term care and home care supports, including elder abuse prevention: the Canadian Seniors Care Transfer (CSCT).
- CALTC logo with member logos (CNW Group/Canadian Association for Long-Term Care)Historically, federal investments across the continuum of seniors’ care have been limited or not prioritized in overall health budgets.
- CALTC, CanAge, Canadian Nurses Association and HealthCareCAN recognize that seniors’ care looks different in every province and territory, as each jurisdictional government regulates seniors care in different ways.
- CALTC, CanAge, Canadian Nurses Association and HealthCareCAN propose that the CSCT would grow on a predictable escalator over the next 10 years.
- A Canadian Seniors Care Transfer would allow federal policymakers to strike the right balance, respecting these differences while also ensuring that provinces and territories have dedicated funding that must be used to enhance seniors’ care in their jurisdiction.
- About CALTCThe Canadian Association for Long Term Care (CALTC) is committed to ensuring quality long-term care for all.
- We are a non-partisan, non-profit organization and backed by a broad pan-Canadian membership base.
