On Wednesday, April 20, 2016, Nickel Belt MPP France Gélinas introduced the Time to Care Act in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
Bill 188 calls for a minimum of 4 hours of hands-on care every day for residents of Ontario’s long-term care homes.
CUPE Ontario and the CUPE Ontario Health Care Workers’ Coordinating Committee have been lobbying on this important issue for several years through the Time to Care campaign. We are so proud of the tireless dedication of the CUPE members and advocates who put in so much effort to see this day happen.
But our work isn’t over yet—we need everyone’s support to ensure that the Liberal government and the Conservatives make this much-needed bill the law. Please contact your local MPP and ask them to support Bill 188.
