Sign Now: Tell Ford to Stop Home Care Privatization

Doug Ford’s government just made it easier to privatize home care in Ontario. [1]

The new law hands control of home care from public agencies to new “Ontario Health Teams” – which are loose coalitions of private home care organizations. The little control and oversight the public has over home care will be dismantled. [2]

We’ve seen how privatization has worked in long-term care. For-profit nursing homes have seen four times the amount of COVID-19 deaths as public nursing homes, while CEOs rake in massive profits. [3]

Not only is this mew law danger to our seniors, but it was also crafted behind closed doors with no public consultation.

Sign the petition if you oppose the further privatization of Ontario’s home care system!
