Nursing homes ‘intending to leave’ Toronto over rebuilding costs

14 long-term-care homes with 1,800 residents are planning to move or ‘at risk’ of leaving city

The operators of eight long-term-care homes in Toronto with nearly 1,300 residents have told the province they intend to shut down and move their operations elsewhere, CBC News has learned.

Six other nursing homes, with more than 500 residents, are considered “at risk” of leaving the city, according to an assessment by the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), a regional administration agency under the province’s Health Ministry.

The agency is refusing to reveal which homes are under threat of relocating.

“The information you have requested is not publicly available as the long-term care homes have not consented its release,” said Megan Primeau, communications director for Toronto Central LHIN, in an email to CBC News.

The umbrella groups representing nursing homes in Ontario are also declining to name the facilities.
