Resident and family councils

Councils provide an opportunity to get involved and share your thoughts.

Residents’ Council

All long term care centres have a Residents’ Council. They are a group of residents who meet monthly to discuss issues of interest regarding the centre they live in.

Residents are encouraged to participate in these meetings as the goal is to safeguard the rights, respect, dignity, and quality of life of residents. This is an opportunity for residents to play a role in the general operation of the centre by influencing decisions on subjects such as food, activities, and outings, to name a few. The date, time and location of the meetings are posted on the monthly resident calendar located in all resident home areas.

All residents are welcome to get involved.

Residents’ Council Presidents are elected by their peers. They play an important role in each home as ambassadors for other residents.
