With the ongoing local and global concerns around COVID-19, the Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority, in conjunction with the Ontario Ministry of Health, has provided recommendations and procedures to Retirement Homes. The health, safety and well-being of our residents and employees is our top priority and we are following the lead of Canadian public health authorities.
