Step 2: Engage your Local Health Integration Network or Health Authority

In Ontario, you can apply for long-term care through your Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). Find your LHIN on their website

In British Columbia, you can apply for government-subsidized long-term/residential care through your local health authority, or pay for them privately. For more information on how these two differ, visit our accommodations page or our FAQ page.
