Long Term Care

Resident Fees

  • The MLTC sets the cost of accommodation at all long-term care homes across Ontario.
  • Private or non-profit, the fees are the same.

Who pays for long-term care at Region of Peel centres?

A long-term care centre is a place where an individual lives and receives care and other services provided by trained staff.

The Ministry of Long-Term Care (MLTC), the Region of Peel and residents all share the cost of long-term care.

  • The Ministry of Long-Term Care (MLTC) provides funding for all long-term care homes in Ontario.
  • The Region of Peel also contributes funding to the operations of our five long-term care centres to enhance the lives of residents.
  • The amount residents pay for their accommodation is called a co-payment.

Co-payment fees

The MLTC sets the cost of accommodation at all long-term care homes across Ontario. The rates are reviewed every year. The MLTC will notify residents and/or families directly about the new cost should the rates change.

Important note:

During COVID-19, the Ontario government is suspending long-term care resident co-payment rate increases for the entire 2020-21 rate cycle (July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021). The rate increase that would have gone into effect in January 2021 will no longer take place. Rate increases are now scheduled to resume in July 2021. Please refer to the Ministry of Long-Term Care's bulletin regarding long-term care homes accommodations charges.
