The Ontario Association of Residents' Councils (OARC) is a non-profit association providing a network to strengthen the voice of residents living in long-term care through their respective Residents’ Councils.
Our Objectives Are To:
Support the formation and sustainability of Residents' Councils in all Homes in Ontario
Empower residents living in long-term care homes to participate in the operations of their homes and to be involved in decisions that affect their lives.
Identify key issues impacting residents living in long-term care and collaborate with provincial partners and key stakeholders to address these areas through policy and practices
Develop and make accessible education and tools to be used by resident leaders, Council Assistants and Administrators to enhance the operations of individual Councils and foster communication and collaboration among teams
Promote legislation which improves the quality of life for all residents
