Every resident: Bill of Rights for people who live in Ontario long-term care homes

Every Resident sets out the expanded Residents' Bill of Rights, which is meant to ensure that long-term care homes are truly homes for the people who live in them. The booklet also sets out what residents can do if they believe their rights have been violated, as well as information on where to get help. This edition has been updated with information about:

  • the new Ministry complaints process
  • contact information for health profession regulatory colleges
  • more information on informed consent to treatment
