System Performance

Long-Term Care Sector Performance

Long-term care homes are an important part of health care in Ontario, providing loved ones with the 24-hour care needed for complex health conditions. Tens of thousands of people in Ontario rely on nursing, medical treatment, physiotherapy, and other services offered in long-term care homes.

Ontario has the largest and longest-running data collection and reporting system in Canada for information on the quality of care in long-term care homes.

This data is available for information purposes only. All of our data comes from external data providers, which may occasionally make adjustments to the data published here. We ensure the information we report is of the highest quality, and protects privacy and confidentiality. We do not access any data that identifies personal information.

If you have a question about system performance and reporting on Ontario’s health system, please email us at SystemPerformance@HQOntario.ca
