The Orientation eLearning Series, developed by the Ontario CLRI at the RIA, provides education for new LTC team members during their orientation, and for existing team members during their annual training. These scenario-based and interactive eLearning courses ensure that learners have the knowledge and skills needed to assist the people they support and are in line with MoLTC guidelines. They were developed using evidence-based best practices and adult education principles, in collaboration with subject matter experts and LTC leaders.


Everyone working, volunteering, or visiting long-term care homes plays a significant role in ensuring residents feel at home, are treated with kindness and respect, and receive the necessary support and services for their health and well-being. In the Respecting and Promoting Residents Rights in Long-Term Care course, learners will immerse themselves in an interactive care setting that incorporates real-life situations shared by residents living in long-term care across Ontario.


This interactive eLearning course aligns with the Fixing Long-Term Care Act, and can support new and existing LTC team members with knowledge and skills related to resident rights. This course is available at no cost!
