Care Providers From Across Canada to Meet in Manitoba

Seniors care providers from across Canada are meeting this week in Gimli, Manitoba for the 9th annual meeting of the Canadian Alliance for Long Term Care (CALTC) Jan Legeros, Executive Director of the Long Term and Continuing Care Association of Manitoba said she is very pleased her province is hosting this year’s meeting. “In addition to being home to some of the country’s most dedicated seniors’ care workers, Manitoba is also one of Canada’s most beautiful provinces. My colleagues are very excited to visit Gimli this month.”

CALTC is a national organization comprised of provincial associations and long term care providers that deliver publicly-funded health care services for seniors across Canada. Their members represent care providers responsible for the employment of over 50,000 Canadians and delivering quality care to more than 100,000 of Canada's most vulnerable residents each day. CALTC’s policy and advocacy focus includes:

  • resident/tenant care and service delivery
  • funding levels & staffing models
  • legislative & regulatory frameworks
  • introduction & implementation of new health care technologies
  • health human resources
  • demographic & sector trends
  • meeting consumer needs & developing stakeholder collaborations

This year’s meeting agenda will focus on the many cost pressures facing Canada’s long-term seniors care system in light of Canada’s rapidly aging society. Last year’s annual meeting took place in New Brunswick. A full summary of meeting topics, discussions items and next steps will be posted in September.
