The Ministry of Long-Term Care provides funding for all long-term care homes in Ontario. Peel Region also contributes funding to the operations of our 5 long term care centres to enhance the lives of residents.

All long term care home residents are required to contribute towards the cost of accommodation and meals. This is called a co-payment fee. The amount of your co-payment fee is based on whether you are in a basic, semi-private or private room.

Regardless of room type, all long term care residents are entitled to the same level of care.

The Ministry of Long-Term Care sets maximum co-payment fees each year. These are standard across all long term care homes in Ontario, whether for profit or not-for-profit.

Refer to paying for long term care for details about rates.

Financial assistance
