What we do
The Elliott Long-Term Care Residence (The Elliott) operates as the City’s designated long-term care facility. The Elliott is a charitable corporation which operates retirement living suites and life-lease suites, in addition to the long-term care residence collectively known as The Elliott Community. The Elliott is a local board of the City as established by The Elliott Act, 2002. All areas of operation are overseen by a Board of Trustees appointed by City Council. The Long-term Care Homes Act, 2007, S.O. 2007 requires that a municipality, approved to operate a long-term care home, form a Committee of Management composed of members of Council to oversee the responsibilities of the home. On August 25, 2014, Council passed the Delegation of Authority By-law number (2014)-19796 which establishes Community and Social Services (now Public Services) Committee as the Committee of Management.
Why we do it
Long-term Care is essential for supporting our aging residents and contributes to the goals of the Building Our Future priority. This service contributes to building a safe and healthy community and nurtures social well-being.
