Ontario Building New Long-Term Care Beds in Vaughan
April 21, 2022
Paul Calandra, Minister of Long Term Care, along with Stephen Lecce, MPP for King-Vaughan, announced that the Ontario government is adding 256 new long-term care beds and building a new long-term care home for the Mackenzie Health Vaughan Long-Term Care Facility. This is part of the government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 30,000 net new beds by 2028 and 28,000 upgraded long-term care beds across the province.
“Our government has a plan to fix long-term care and a key part of that plan is building modern, safe, and comfortable homes for our seniors,” said Paul Calandra, Minister of Long-Term Care. “When this home in Vaughan is completed, 256 residents will have a new place to call home, near their family and friends.”
The new long-term care home in Vaughan will be built on the lands adjacent to Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital, which will help integrate the long-term care home into the broader health care system and ensure residents have access to the care they need. Construction is expected to start in Winter 2025.
There are now 512 new long-term care beds in development in Vaughan. In addition to the project announced today, one other project is underway:

The government has a plan to fix long-term care and to ensure Ontario’s seniors get the quality of care and quality of life they need and deserve both now and in the future. The plan is built on three pillars: staffing and care; accountability, enforcement, and transparency; and building modern, safe, comfortable homes for seniors.
