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.
