The provincial government issued a media release today announcing a new recruitment program to raise staffing levels in long-term care homes.

Ontario Workforce Reserve for Senior Support

Addressing the shortage of support in long-term care homes, the provincial government has initiated a program to help long-term care homes by training and deploying interested Ontarians as Resident Support Aides to long-term care homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ontarians can access the program through the Ontario Matching Portal and will be screened, trained and matched with a home. According to the media release, this program is seeking individuals “interested in new opportunities – specifically those who are unemployed or have been displaced from the retail and hospital industries or administrative roles as well as students in education programs.”

The full release can be found online here.
