Seniors Care webinar hosted by the BC Health Coalition and the Council of Canadians on November 24, 2020. This was the first of two webinars focused on Committing to Seniors Care. This webinar focuses on how we can ensure that public funding for care is spent directly on care in LTC.
We want greater accountability towards residents, improved working conditions for workers to provide care, and an increase in public transparency in Long-Term Care. Most importantly, we want public funding for care to go directly to providing care and not to subsidize profits. To do this we need a provincial plan to eliminate the profit motive from Long-Term Care and Seniors Care.
This webinar will be gratefully hosted on the traditional and unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.
