A Community of Practice is a group of people who share a common concern or interest who come together regularly to learn from one another. We encourage LTC leaders, interprofessional team members (RNs, RPNs, PSWs, social workers, recreation professionals, dietitians, physiotherapists, physicians), residents and family care partners to join these discussions!

The next round of our EDI in LTC Community of Practice is OPEN FOR NEW MEMBERS! Join us to learn strategies on how to build an organizational culture that is inclusive, welcoming and affirming for everyone living, visiting and working in LTC.

The deadline to submit your Expression of Interest is Friday, May 19, 2023.

Don’t miss out on this dynamic group of engaged LTC leaders and interprofessional team members, including researchers and sector partner organization representatives, who are committed to advancing equity and inclusion.

The group has been meeting since November 2022, and thus far the CoP has explored topics such as how to start and sustain and Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, 2SLGBTQIA+ inclusion, addressing racism, and how to utilize our Embracing Diversity Toolkit.

Our next round of sessions will begin in June 2023, and the quarterly sessions will feature guest speaker(s) and breakout discussions.

We will also offer optional group check-in sessions, creating space for participants to bring questions up, discuss challenges, and share successes with peers.

We will cover topics including:
  • Measurement and data
  • EDI policy development
  • Supporting Indigenous populations: Truth and Reconciliation in LTC
  • Responding to reports of discrimination
  • EDI Strategy development
  • And more!
Learning Goals:
  • To create a space for members to learn from and share with one another around the topic of equity, diversity and inclusion in a safe and affirming environment
  • To encourage people working, living and providing care in LTC to get peer-based feedback on their EDI journey
  • To provide a space for new connections to form between people working, living and providing care within the LTC sector
  • Provide access to educational opportunities, evidence-informed tools, resources and initiatives that are relevant to LTCHs
  • To identify gaps and needs for those working in the sector to support capacity building

We look forward to supporting you on your EDI journey. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Michelle Fleming, Senior Knowledge Broker at
