Despite numerous reports in Quebec over the past 20 years calling for major reforms to long-term care, the government has yet to take serious action. Will public outrage at the systemic failures exposed by the pandemic be a catalyst for meaningful change? What should be the top policy priorities to kick-start fundamental reform and show tangible results?
On June 3, 2021, we held an in-depth discussion (in French) on how problems plaguing the long-term care system should be addressed in post-pandemic Quebec. Our guests were Réjean Hébert, Marie-Louise Leroux, and Yves Couturier. The event was moderated by Charles Breton, Executive Director of the IRPP’s Centre of Excellence on the Canadian Federation.
This is the third in a series of IRPP webinars examining policy options and priorities for Canadian governments to keep long-term care reform near the top of their post-pandemic agendas. The webinars are accompanied by “Kick -Starting Reform in Long-Term Care,” a feature series of articles published by Policy Options magazine, and complement research being conducted at the IRPP by the Centre of Excellence on the Canadian Federation and the Faces of Aging program.
