The rapid rise and severity of COVID-19 cases in long-term care (LTC) has led to the urgent redeployment of health professionals to LTC environments. The Ontario COVID-19 Education Task Force, in partnership with the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) and the Baycrest Centre for Education, developed an LTC section on, an online learning management system to support upskilling for health-care workers being redeployed for COVID-19 care.

Please share this resource with incoming team members who are new to the LTC environment. These materials facilitate redeployment to a team-based model of care quickly and safely in LTC homes, and support team members to bridge their knowledge from current practice to the requirements to care for COVID-19 and other residents.

Please download the official announcement (PDF) and FAQ (PDF) for instructions. Use the confidential access code sent via email to our subscribers (or email for a code).

Please note that the learning platform is only available to Ontario organizations at this time. The site will continue to be updated with skills education for more roles in LTC. Your feedback on these roles and the skills covered is welcome and can be sent to

The educational resources for the LTC section of were developed by a highly skilled and collaborative team of educational experts, clinicians, and academics. Multiple public-facing resources from organizations were used to create this resource, such as those from Baycrest, Bruyère, George Brown College, the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging, and Surge Learning.
