Long-Term Care

MISSISSAUGA — The Ontario government is adding 138 new and 118 upgraded long-term care beds in a new building for the Streetsville Care Community long-term care home in Mississauga. This is part of the government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 30,000 net new beds by 2028 and about 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 Rod Phillips, Minister of Long-Term Care. “When Streetsville Care Community in Mississauga is completed it will be a place for 256 seniors to call home, near their family and friends.”

Streetsville Care Community, Mississauga is a long-term care home that will be part of a campus of care, which helps integrate the home into the broader health care system and ensures residents have access to the care they need. The home is expected to start construction by Spring 2023.

With the addition of the 138 new and 118 upgraded beds allocated to Streetsville Care Community, there are now 1,343 new and 409 upgraded long-term care beds in development or under construction in Mississauga, including:

  • 632 new beds at Trillium Health Partners;
  • 137 new and 55 upgraded beds at Schlegel Villages Mississauga;
  • 73 new and 151 upgraded beds at Tyndall Seniors Village;
  • 320 new beds at Mississauga Seniors Care Partnerships;
  • 43 new and 85 upgraded beds at Ivan Franko Homes Village.

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.

Quick Facts

  • Building new long-term care homes and upgrading existing older homes to modern standards is part of the Government of Ontario’s Long-Term Care Modernization Plan.
  • The Province has issued a new Call for Applications for Long-Term Care Home Development, in order to deliver on its goal of building 30,000 net new long-term care beds by 2028. The ministry is evaluating applications received on a rolling basis and will make a series of allocation announcements, as decisions are made.
  • Ontario plans to invest an additional $3.7 billion, beginning in 2024–25, on top of the historic $2.68 billion already invested, to support this new series of allocations for the development of 10,000 net new and more than 12,000 upgraded beds across the province. These historic investments would bring the total to $6.4 billion since spring 2019.
  • Ontario now has 20,523 new and 16,036 upgraded beds in the development pipeline – which means more than 68 percent of the 30,000 net new beds being delivered are in the planning, construction and completed stages of the development process.
  • The Province has taken innovative steps to get long-term care homes built, including modernizing its funding model, selling unused lands with the requirement that long-term care homes be built on portions of the properties, and leveraging hospital-owned land to build urgently needed homes in large urban areas.
  • As of June 2021, more than 38,000 people were on the waitlist to access a long-term care bed in Ontario. The median wait time is 163 days for applicants to be placed in long-term care.
  • The Ontario government has introduced legislation that, if passed, would improve the well-being of residents in long-term care and retirement homes, and ensure they get the care they deserve. If passed, the Providing More Care, Protecting Seniors, and Building More Beds Act, 2021 would repeal the current Long-Term Care Homes Act, 2007 and create the Fixing Long-Term Care Act, 2021. The Bill also includes proposed amendments to the Retirement Homes Act, 2010.


“Streetsville Community Care has been a significant part of our city for 45 years. It is an important part of our community and I’m thrilled this facility will be benefiting from our government’s commitment to fix long-term care across the province.”

“Sienna’s Streetsville Care Community is part of the fabric of Mississauga and has been for over four decades. With our redevelopment plans, we will transform this home into a new modern campus of care that will serve seniors for generations to come. Today’s announcement enables us to take another step towards fulfilling our commitment to investing $600 million to redevelop our Class C long-term care homes. When the doors to this beautiful new care community open, members of Mississauga’s diverse community will receive culturally specific programs and services so that they feel at home with us.”
