About the Initiative

This initiative supports workforce capacity building and resident-centred care through the identification, development and spread of information and resources that support diversity in long-term care (LTC) homes.  Work and resources associated with this initiative recognizes that resident care can be influenced by individual circumstances, including language, gender identity and expression, ability, ethnicity, religion, and sexual orientation. This initiative aims to educate and share resources that support LTC homes in delivering care that acknowledges resident and team member diversity.

A Supporting Diversity of Culture Advisory Committee and other experts, including persons with lived experience, contribute to the work of this initiative and the identification and spread of resources that support diversity in LTC and inform diversity across all CLRI activities.
