Engaging Communities in Setting Priorities for Home and Community Care in Northeastern Ontario

Over the last year, significant effort has been put into understanding and improving the provision of home and community care across Ontario. The North East region faces some unique challenges, including the large geographic region, cultural and linguistic diversity, and a higher percentage of adults aged 65 or older compared to the provincial average.  For this project, three citizen  panels were convened for: 1) Aboriginal community members; 2) Francophone community members; and 3) mainstream community members.
