Long-term care facilities have been an essential component in Ontario health care since the nineteenth century. Health care reforms over the last decade have made these facilities even more critical to care. In Ontario, Liberal, Conservative and New Democratic governments have acknowledged their importance through both regulations and funding. The majority of the money for care in these facilities comes from the public purse, although their share of funding is small relative to other sectors in health care.
