This report focuses on the actions and inactions that significantly contributed to the devastation experienced in long-term care in Ontario during the COVID-19 pandemic. It describes the state of the long-term care sector and pandemic preparedness before COVID-19; addresses the response to the pandemic and some of the successes and failures on this front; and it looks at promising developments in long-term care.

The commission’s recommendations include:

  1. fund person-centred models of care;
  2. increase care hours for allied health professionals;
  3. improve home care for overall integrated systemic improvement;
  4.  ensure government accountability (i.e., the commission’s ultimate recommendation requires the minister of long-term care tabling a progress report in the legislature on the first and third anniversary of the release of the commission’s report).
