Construction is underway on a new long-term care home adjacent to the existing Mon Sheong Stouffville Long-Term Care Centre on Sandiford Drive.

The new facility will provide 224 new beds and will feature design improvements including larger resident common areas and air conditioning throughout the home. The design is centred around ‘resident home areas’, each of which creates a more intimate and familiar living space for up to 32 residents, with dining and activity areas, lounges and bedrooms.

“Congratulations to the Mon Sheong Foundation on their groundbreaking for a second Mon Sheong home in Stouffville. Our government is fixing long-term care and ensuring we build homes for seniors in the communities they helped build,” Minister of Long-Term Care Stan Cho said at a groundbreaking Nov. 3. “Today marks a significant milestone for Stouffville. When construction is completed, 224 residents will have a new, modern and comfortable place to call home.”

The new home at Mon Sheong Stouffville Long-Term Care Centre will be part of a larger campus of senior living and services and offer culturally appropriate services to the Chinese community. The home is expected to welcome its first residents in fall 2026.

In 2021, Mon Sheong opened the first building of the Stouffville Long-Term Care Centre, which included 320 beds. The facility included special features, such as each room and common area having its own individual HVAC system for heating, cooling and ventilation.

The new long-term care home is one of 67 long-term care home projects fast-tracked this fall with support from the Ontario government’s increased construction funding subsidy. This is part of the Ontario government’s commitment to build more than 58,000 new and upgraded long-term care beds across the province.
