Home-care in Ontario is funded both publicly and privately and is not governed under the Canada Health Act. Funding is severely inadequate, which has resulted in many Ontarians not being able to afford or access the home-care services they require. Over the past decade funding for home-care has decreased substantially, while wait times for clients have increased. More highly skilled workers are required in order to deliver the quality of service that our fellow Ontarians deserve. An increase in funding would create more accessible home-care in Ontario.
