Since 2012, the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) have worked to transform learning opportunities to strengthen the long-term care (LTC) workforce.
The Ontario CLRI supported the LTC sector in 2020/21 by engaging 87% of the 600+ LTC homes and potentially impacting the care of more than 70,000 residents across the province.
We built up the LTC workforce through education and training, resources, and practice change, often in partnership with LTC homes, colleges, universities and other stakeholders. More than 22,000 hours of training were offered to more than 21,000 team members, clinicians, and students.
We sparked change by sharing ideas, innovations and evidence to help LTC homes and stakeholders to implement new practices. We had 518 knowledge mobilization activities and helped to spread more than 250 resources that the Program identified, created or developed.

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 June 2021.
