Day of Action for National Standards for Long Term Care


On April 27, advocates from all across Canada will be joining in on a national day of action for long term care standards. Friends of Medicare, along with Canadians 4 LTC Standards, and provincial health coalitions, will be marking the day of action with demonstrations in cities across the country.
Join us in demanding that all levels of government act decisively to implement national care standards to ensure that everyone has access to the care they need and deserve. Tune in to the livestream all day on April 27, where family advocates and health coalitions across the country will be standing up for long-term care residents and demanding the creation and implementation of national long-term care standards!
The specific programs for the day of action will be determined based on local COVID-19 restrictions nearer to the date of the event. For more information as it becomes available, watch this page!
