Federal government signs $221-million agreement with Quebec for long-term care homes

The federal government has signed an agreement with Quebec to provide $221 million in funding for long-term care homes in the province to address “gaps in infection control” and staffing issues highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Federal health minister Jean-Yves Duclos made the announcement about the Safe Long-Term Care Fund in Montreal-North Monday morning alongside the MP for Bourassa, Emmanuel Dubourg, and MP Patricia Lattanzio from Saint-Leonard-Saint-Michel.

“We’ve seen in this particular area of Montreal, and in my own riding, we’ve seen how damaging the pandemic has been to our seniors in long-term care homes and that was true before the pandemic as well,” Duclos said.

While this marks a significant investment in Quebec, no one from the province was present for the announcement in Montreal.

Duclos said he is in regular contact with Health Minister Christian Dubé and Monday’s announcement is just one of many files that he collaborates with him on from the federal government.

Canada had set aside $1 billion in the fall economic statement back in 2020 to help the provinces and territories beef up their prevention control measures in long-term care homes.

The health minister said, “it took time for the good agreement” to be reached with Quebec for the investment.
