Residents’ Voices – OARC needs your help!

Posted On: May 26, 2022

The Ontario Association of Residents’ Councils (OARC) has launched a survey to explore the current needs of Residents’ Councils and learn more about how residents are involved in their long-term care homes. In addition to hearing directly from residents, OARC is seeking the invaluable feedback of those who directly support and enable Residents’ Councils in every home. Results from the survey will be used to inform OARC’s supportive approach and future education offerings.

This survey is resident-focused, and open to:

  • All residents (including those who do not attend Residents’ Council meetings)
  • Residents’ Council Assistants
  • Administrators/Executive Directors

The assistance of family care partners, team members and volunteers is sincerely appreciated to ensure that every resident who wishes to complete a survey is supported to do so.  OARC’s survey will be live until June 20th, 2022 and each entry will be eligible to win a $50 gift card prize.

Complete your survey online here.  Printable survey version available here.

Requests to complete a survey over the phone may be directed to OARC team member Chloe Lee at 1-800-532-0201 ext. 290 or by email

Promotional posters to post in your long-term care home available here.

Additional information about our survey can be found in our recent bulletin.
