The COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating for seniors, especially for those living in long-term care and the hardworking people who care for them.
Seniors deserve to live in dignity, safety, and comfort, and their families deserve to feel confident in the care their loved ones receive, no matter where they live.
That’s why our Liberal team has a plan to work with the provinces and territories to better support our seniors and the people who care for them.
We’re going to train up to 50,000 new personal support workers and raise their wages, with a guaranteed minimum wage of at least $25 per hour, and work with the provinces and territories to make our long-term care homes healthier, safer, and more accessible.
To help our seniors stay in their homes longer, we will double the Home Accessibility Tax Credit to provide up to an additional $1,500.
We know that better care for seniors starts with better conditions for our frontline care workers, but Erin O’Toole won’t support the people who care for our parents and grandparents.
We can’t let them take us backward. Let’s move forward — for everyone.
