The Ontario CLRI is proud to release the 2020-21 Annual Report and Summary to provide an overview of Program impacts this past year.

The report demonstrates how the Ontario CLRI Program used new ways to deliver education and share resources to enhance the well-being of those who live and work in long-term care (LTC).

The Ontario CLRI supported the LTC sector in 2020-21 by engaging 548 (87%) of the 627 LTC homes and potentially impacting the care of more than 70,213 LTC residents in Ontario.

This year we continued the push to create innovative solutions to address the growing pandemic-driven gaps in long-term care homes, such as the need for access to vital training for the influx of staff entering homes for the first time, which we met through the development and launch of our eLearning hub and orientation resources. – Heidi Sveistrup, Ontario CLRI Executive

We helped build up the LTC workforce through education/training, resources, and practice change, often in partnership with LTC homes, colleges, universities, and other stakeholders. We offered 39 training/education initiatives and 65 other learning events such as webinars, presentations and recordings that were accessed by 21,307 team members, clinicians and students in LTC.

We are grateful to our partners and collaborators in the LTC sector – there are too many to name in one blog post, but you can find them throughout our website on the pages for resources and events they helped guide and implement.

As the sector rebuilds, we are here to innovate, equip and build capacity in long-term care so that homes can succeed in their care of residents in the midst of any external challenge the future may hold. – Dr. David Conn, Ontario CLRI Executive

The report is available in English and French with annual summaries for an at-a-glance look at 2020-21 impacts.

We wish to acknowledge the input and guidance of the Ontario CLRI Provincial Advisory Committee in the creation of this report, which was submitted to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in August 2021.
