COVID-19 has shone a bright light on the systemic injustices, inequity and significant disparities experienced by individuals marginalized by society. As we focus on action moving forward, our Forum aims to build collaborative conversations towards inclusive, equitable and affirming care, services and work environments in LTC communities.

Every resident has a right to be themselves in their own home. 

Everyone deserves to feel safe and included when they go to work. 

The Ontario CLRI Supporting Diversity and Inclusion Committee is hosting a free, virtual forum: Allied for Inclusivity in LTC: A Forum to Build Connections to help demystify EDI-related topics and provide effective ways to influence change within your organizations.

Our forum will provide an opportunity for LTC home representatives to come together with researchers to learn more about equity, diversity and inclusion in the LTC sector, and take home practical solutions for increasing the inclusivity of their organization.

Event highlights

  • Opening and closing keynote presentations from experts in the field of equity, diversity and inclusion in health!
  • Presentations from Ontario LTC homes sharing equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives they are implementing in their home
  • Presentations from Canadian researchers focused on equity, diversity, and inclusion relevant to the LTC sector
  • Breakout Rooms with the opportunity to deep dive into specific topic areas and network with other attendees


Stay tuned for more details soon about the LTC homes and researchers who will also be presenting!
