Ontario Invests $1 Billion to Support Seniors and Caregivers

Country Correspondent: Aisha Gomez

Ontario is investing CAD 1 billion over three years to support the Seniors' Healthy Home Program. Starting in 2019, the program will provide up to CAD 750 per year to eligible households led by seniors 75 and older to support caregivers and help elders live independently longer. The initiative runs parallel to other investments in the 2018–19 budget to support elders, including CAD 650 million for improving home and community services, establishing the Ontario Caregiver Organization, and making investments in new long-term care homes.
