Our parents and grandparents have given us so much. As they age, they deserve to live in comfort and safety.
But long-term care in Canada has long been underfunded and understaffed — and the federal Liberal government has allowed this to continue. The situation was so bad that during the pandemic, the army had to be called in to care for seniors. Trudeau made a promise to better fund long-term care – instead, he underfunded senior care and protected the profits of big corporations and their wealthy shareholders at the cost of our loved ones.
We owe it to seniors to do better.
New Democrats will end private, for-profit long-term care and bring long-term care homes under the public umbrella, as well as developing national care standards for home care and long-term care.
Add your name if you’re ready to help us take the greed out of caring for our most vulnerable.
Thank you for your support.
Take the next step and help spread the word.
