LTC News Release: Presentation on the HORA Amendments

Mayor Bower has proposed legislation that would amend the Health Occupations Regulations Act (HORA). There is little in these amendments to alleviate the current healthcare workforce crisis and some provisions could actually make it worse but imposing new restrictions and more regulation on direct care workers and home health agency administrators. A virtual hearing is scheduled before the Committee on Health on December 7 at 11:00 am.   To learn more about all the proposed changes and what you can do, read the Coalition’s presentation here.
