Ottawa/IBNS: An investment of an additional $32 million this year, a 15 percent or over $40 million increase from last year is being made by the government of Ontario to expand healthy menu options for long-term care residents, including a broader range of culturally inspired meals, a news release has said.

“We believe…a good meal is essential to good living,” said Paul Calandra, Minister of Long-Term Care.

“That’s why for the second year in a row, we’re providing a major increase to improve the quality and variety of food for residents in long-term care.”

The Ontario Government’s new regulations under the Fixing Long-Term Care Act, 2021, that came into effect on July 11, 2022, ensures Ontario’s seniors experience the quality of care and quality of life they need and deserve, both now and in the future.
