National Long Term Care Services Standards

Health Standards Organization (HSO) is pleased to announce the release of our Consultation Workbooks to gather additional input to shape the development of our new National Long-Term Care Services Standard.

HSO is looking to reach as many people as possible with this Consultation Workbook to ensure Canada’s new National Long-Term Care Services Standard reflects the diverse experiences and perspectives of all Canadians. Recreation Therapy’s perspective is vital.

Access to the Workbooks and the submission portal, are found here: https://longtermcarestandards.ca/engage.


Improving Quality of Life for Older Adults


Engagement on the Disability Inclusion Action Plan

The Government of Canada is consulting Canadians on how to improve the lives of Canadians with disabilities. Your feedback will support the development of the Disability Inclusion Action Plan.

The Disability Inclusion Action Plan will focus on:

  • reducing poverty among Canadians with disabilities
  • getting more persons with disabilities into good quality jobs
  • helping meet the Accessible Canada Act goal of a barrier-free Canada by 2040
  • making it easier for persons with disabilities to access federal programs and services
  • fostering a culture of inclusion

We invite you to participate by completing the online survey at https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/programs/accessible-canada/consultation-disability-inclusion-action-plan.html before August 31, 2021.

You can also print and complete the (English version) or (French version) of the survey by hand and mail it to:
