Korean Nursing Home Task Force Toronto started this petition to Toronto City Council Members

Toronto’s Korean community urgently needs more long-term care facilities.

Right now, the city only has one Korean-speaking LTC (long-term care) facility — Rose of Sharon Korean LTC Home, which only has a capacity of 60. There are over 160 applicants waitlisted, aged 90 and older — many of whom will not live to experience Rose of Sharon’s compassionate, culturally-sensitive level of care necessary for their comfort, health and quality of life. Hundreds of other Korean seniors have already given up and are in English-speaking facilities, family care or living alone.

To help fill that gap, the Korean-Canadian community has an exciting opportunity to break ground on a brand-new Korean LTC facility. Pastor Joseph Yang and his congregation of Full of Joy Church have generously offered their land at 1100 Petrolia Road in North York for the new home.

But a zoning change is required to allow construction of a LTC home on this site — which is currently zoned for industrial use. We’re appealing to Toronto City Council to approve a zoning change that will help us break ground as soon as possible and bring hope to seniors in our community with nowhere else to go. 

Help our seniors by signing this petition asking Toronto City Council to rezone the property at 1100 Petrolia Road in North York, Ontario for a new Korean-Canadian LTC facility. 

Your signatures will show the members of Toronto city council that a 2nd Korean Long Term Care Home is desperately needed in the GTA. We have the land, we have the will, and by calling on our community to support us, we will succeed in bringing peace and dignity to our vulnerable elders. Please don't let this opportunity escape us.

We thank you for your solidarity and support.
