The Ontario government owes an apology to the families of the 3,758 long-term care (LTC) residents lost to COVID-19 and to the staff that valiantly cared for them under deplorable conditions – including 11 who lost their own lives in the line of duty. 

    In a report released on April 30 by the LTC COVID-19 Commission, the commission outlines systemic failings in long-term care that RNAO has raised for over two decades including since 2018 with the Ford government. 

    Ensure your colleagues are not missing out on RNAO’s latest membership offer. 

    For only $100 (all taxes included), registered nurses (RN) and nurse practitioners (NP) can join and enjoy all the benefits of being a member. For colleagues who work 15 hours or less per week, their membership fee is only $87.83.

    RNAO’s theme this year for its 96th Annual General Meeting (AGM) is Protecting Ontarians and  Leading Change: Nurses and RNAO during COVID-19.

    The theme speaks to the hard work and care nurses are providing day in and day out to Ontarians during this pandemic and the change they are leading by making the province a healthier place for all. 

    This year, RNAO’s AGM will be held virtually on June 24-26, 2021.
