Do you know someone who excels in using empathetic language and respectful communication practices? Nominate them for our second annual Person-Centred Language Award! 

In partnership with Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) and with support from the Ontario Long-Term Care Association (OLTCA), we’re excited to recognize the extraordinary efforts of champions who are dedicated to creating supportive and life-affirming environments for residents, family care partners and team members.

The Person-Centred Language Award celebrates residents, family members, team members or leaders who engage in inclusive, verbal and non-verbal communication practices that focus on the individual and their unique preferences and needs. Through their passion and commitment, person-centred language champions help foster an environment of compassion, dignity and respect. 

The winner will be recognized at OLTCA’s This is Long Term Care 2024 conference! The winner will also receive a personalized certificate of recognition and will be featured in a story in the Ontario CLRI newsletter/website.
