Long Term Care

Resident Fees

  • The MOHLTC sets the cost of accommodation at all long-term care homes across Ontario.
  • Private or non-profit, the fees are the same.

Who pays for long-term care at Region of Peel centres?

A long-term care centre is a place where an individual lives and receives care and other services provided by trained staff.

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), the Region of Peel and residents all share the cost of long-term care.

  • The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) provides funding for all long-term care homes in Ontario.
  • The Region of Peel also contributes funding to the operations of our five long-term care centres to enhance the lives of residents.
  • The amount residents pay for their accommodation is called a co-payment.

Co-payment fees

The MOHLTC sets the cost of accommodation at all long-term care homes across Ontario. The rates are reviewed every year. The MOHLTC will notify residents and/or families directly about the new cost should the rates change.
