3.  From RTOERO Provincial: RTOERO continues to speak out about the crisis in long-term care


 RTOERO continues to use its advocacy voice to bring attention to the crisis in long-term residential care. We are emphasizing the urgent need for immediate action to safeguard the lives of long-term care residents and staff, as well as the challenge of transforming our approach to care for older adults once the pandemic is over.

Read our most recent letter to Ontario Minister of Long-Term Care.  

 4. From RTOERO Provincial: Speak to your elected officials about long-term care

 To keep up the momentum and focus on vital tranformation needed of long-term care in Canada, we are encouraging our members to let your elected officials know your views.

 If you have not already done so, I encourage you to visit our advocacy website and access the easy-to-use form to send a message to your provincial and federal representatives. Here’s how it works:

1. Go to There you can read our position papers about geriatric health care and seniors strategy, to learn more about the issues.

2. On the page is a self-serve form to send a message to your elected officials. Simply fill in your name, address and email address.

3. Once you have added your mailing address, the form will show your federal and provincial elected officials. You can choose to send your message to either one or both.

4. We have helped you get started with messaging that reflects RTOERO’s advocacy messages on the issue. We encourage you to personalize the letter with your own story, which you add to the form.

5. When finished, click on the “Add your voice” button. Your message will be emailed to the officials you selected.

6. You will receive an emailed copy of your letter – for your records.

By sharing your views with your elected representatives, you can help keep this issue at the top of governments’ agendas.
