VAUGHAN, ONT. — A new long-term care home will open in Vaughan, Ont., providing a place to live for 256 residents, the Government of Ontario announced Oct. 12.
The new home, which is expected to open in 2026, is part of the province’s initiative to sell unused government land on the condition that a portion of the site be used for long-term care in an effort to build beds in cities where land is scarce and costly.
The province signed a conditional agreement of purchase and sale with Arch Vaughan Facility Inc. for a portion of 7231 Martin Grove Rd.
The government is making a $2.68 billion investment in long-term care development to deliver 30,000 net new beds over 10 years.
An additional $4.9 billion investment over four years supports Ontario’s plan to hire more than 27,000 staff, including registered nurses, personal support workers and support staff, to deliver an average of four hours of daily direct care per resident.
“Our government is fixing Ontario’s long-term care system and building new facilities, like the home that will be built on this site, is a key part of our plan,” said Minister of Long-Term Care Rod Phillips in a statement. “Our government’s initiative to sell unused government lands on the condition that a long-term care home is built on the site, means that more safe, comfortable and modern beds are getting built in areas where they are most needed.”
