Committed to Improving the lives of Ontario residents in
Long Term Care
A Message from Robert Gadsby,
Chair Family Council Network 4
As you may know, our FCN-4 Advocacy Committee has been pushing for a minimum care standard to provide an average of 4 hours of direct hands-on care per resident per day. This initiative received all-party support in the previous Ontario Parliament ... and it has been reintroduced as Bill 13 in this Parliament by Teresa Armstrong (MPP for London – Fanshawe).
Thank-you to the many Family Councils that have already submitted hundreds of signatures in support of Bill 13, but our efforts are not over. Your Petition submissions will continue to be very useful in supporting Bill 13, as it proceeds through Committee to Second and Third Readings in the future.
How can you help?
On the Home Page, you will find our Petition (both and English version and a separate French version) in support of Bill 13. Since this is a new Bill, we need new signatures to support this initiative. Click on the Petition Bill 13 final English .pdf or Petition Bill 13 Final French.pdf to download the Petition for printing.
Please circulate this Petition at your LTC home, church, synagogue, gym, neighbourhood meetings, etc. and invite all of your family and friends (including LTC staff and residents) to sign it.
EVERYONE can sign our Petition which is to be returned by regular mail to Teresa Armstrong (see address at the bottom of the form). Original signatures are required for the Petition to be tabled in the Legislature.
