The Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) build capacity through innovation and collaboration in education, research, and knowledge mobilization. The Ontario CLRI is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and is hosted by Baycrest Health Sciences, Bruyère Research Institute, and Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging.
Who We Are
The Ontario CLRI is a provincial program created to enhance quality in long-term care (LTC). Our resources aim to address the pressing issues in Ontario long-term care, including an aging population, medical complexity in resident care, and workforce recruitment and capacity building. We are a provincially funded program of teaching nursing homes. We began as individual centres within three host organizations and have evolved into an integrated program. We leverage the collective expertise and resources of our host organizations to advance our goals.
What We Do
The program’s goal is to support long-term care homes to improve the quality of life and care for residents through building capacity and promoting innovative best practices. The Ontario CLRI works with stakeholders to support research, develop innovative education, and share resources with LTC homes. We engage with people invested in the LTC sector.
