The Family Council is a group of family members and friends of the residents of a long-term care home who gather together for peer support, education, and to improve the experiences of all people in long-term care. A Family Council is defined as an organized, self-led, self-determining, democratic group that is led by the Council members, not the long-term care home staff. Councils determine their own processes, goals, activities (within the parameters of the LTC homes Act) without interference by the home staff.
Family Councils seek to create a safe, vibrant and supportive LTC home for residents, and their families.
Our Family Council board is located in the main-lobby and details meeting dates, meeting minutes, and other relevant information.

A Resident's Council is an independent, self-determining group made up of only residents of a long-term care home. The Council is intended and designed to form the collective voice of all residents who reside within the LTC home, whether or not they attend meetings. All residents have the right to participate in the Residents Council.
The Resident's Council meets regularly to provide advice and recommendations to the licensee regarding what the residents would like to see done to improve care or the quality of life in the home, and to provide peer to peer support.
