Selling Surplus Properties to Build New Long-Term Care HomesPublished on November 04, 2020
The Ontario government is taking the first step towards building three new long-term care homes by making land available in Oakville, Aurora, and Vaughan.
This will help address barriers often faced by operators, such as limited supply of available land, particularly in urban areas.
The government is selling three surplus provincial properties with the requirement that long-term care homes be built on portions of the following properties:
- 50-100 Bloomington Road in Aurora – 128 long-term care beds
- 7231 Martin Grove Road in Vaughan – 256 long-term care beds
- 2165 Dundas Street West in Oakville – 512 long-term care beds
The new long-term care homes will help the government deliver on its commitment to create 30,000 beds over 10 years. These new homes will allow almost 900 of our loved ones enter long-term care homes sooner, and ease hallway health care in local hospitals.
The government is also driving the development of new long-term care spaces through the Accelerated Build program, which is adding 1,280 spaces in a matter of months, not years; and through a new funding model designed to break down historic barriers to building and speed up new development and the upgrading of existing homes.
