The Ontario Home Care Association:

  • Believes in the creation of a strong, reliable and accessible home care system which fully supports Ontarians to 'age at home' safely.
  • Endorses the principles of the Canada Health Act and the Canadian health care system which delivers a range of essential health care services available to all residents of Canada on the basis of need, not ability to pay. (See Full Statement - Access to Home Care Service Delivery in Ontario, March 2013)
  • Endorses Ontario's vision – "A health care system that helps keep people healthy, gets them good care when they are sick, and will be there for our children and grandchildren."
  • Read our 2012-2013 Strategic Plan

"… there is growing evidence that investing in home care can save money while improving care and the quality of life for people who would otherwise be hospitalized or institutionalized in long-term care facilities."
