To help understand the support and resources that are needed to address the diversity of residents in long-term care (LTC), the Ontario CLRI Program gathered evidence and experiences from around the province to produce this needs assessment.  This needs assessment was guided by an advisory committee and reflects consultations with multiple stakeholders, a literature review and shared learnings from LTC homes across Ontario.  The results of this needs assessment served as support for the Ontario CLRI Program to formalize an advisory committee and workplan to identify and develop resources to support  homes in addressing and welcoming diversity  in long-term care.
