Ontario Building New Long-Term Care Beds in Mississauga

Published on February 07, 2022

New projects will protect our progress by bringing much-needed beds to the province

 

Mississauga — The Ontario government is adding 128 new long-term care beds and building a new long-term care home, VMSA-Mississauga, in Mississauga that will offer culturally appropriate services to the Coptic Christian community. This is part of the government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 30,000 net new beds by 2028 and 28,000 upgraded long-term care beds across the province.

“Our government has a plan to fix long-term care and a key part of that plan is building modern, safe, and comfortable homes for our seniors,” said Paul Calandra, Minister of Long-Term Care. “When the renovations at this home are complete, it will be a place for 128 local seniors to call home, near their family and friends in Mississauga.”

The new long-term care home in Mississauga will have a total of 128 long-term care beds and is proposed to be part of a campus of care which helps integrate the long-term care home into the broader health care system to ensure residents have access to the care they need. Construction is expected to start by Fall 2025.

There are now 1,251 new and 629 upgraded long-term care beds in development, under construction or completed in Mississauga including the following projects:

  • 128 new beds allocated to VMSA-Mississauga announced today
  • 412 new and 220 upgraded beds at Trillium Health Partners - Speakman Site
  • 137 new and 55 upgraded beds at Schlegel Villages - Mississauga
  • 73 new and 151 upgraded beds at Tyndall Seniors Village - Mississauga
  • 43 new and 85 upgraded beds at Ivan Franko Homes Village Development
  • 320 new beds at Mississauga Seniors Care Partnership
  • 138 new and 118 upgraded beds at Streetsville Care Community – Redevelopment.

The government has a plan to fix long-term care and to ensure Ontario’s seniors get the quality of care and quality of life they need and deserve both now and in the future. The plan is built on three pillars: staffing and care; accountability, enforcement, and transparency; and building modern, safe, comfortable homes for seniors.
