The Ontario government has announced eight construction projects with a total of 670 new and 1,618 upgraded long-term care beds in Toronto.

“Our government has a plan to fix long-term care and a key part of that plan is building modern, safe, and comfortable homes for our seniors,” said Paul Calandra, minister of long-term care. “When these eight homes in Toronto are completed, more than 2,000 residents will have a new place to call home, near their family and friends.”

Construction is expected to start between Fall 2022 and Winter 2024 on:

  • 115 new beds and 205 upgraded beds in the redevelopment of Extendicare Bayview in the Toronto area
  • 320 upgraded beds in a redevelopment of Extendicare Guildwood and Extendicare Scarborough
  • 31 new beds and 289 upgraded beds in a redevelopment of Kennedy Lodge in Scarborough
  • 78 new beds and 242 upgraded beds in a redevelopment of Westside home in Etobicoke
  • 150 new beds and 170 upgraded beds in a redevelopment of Cheltenham Care Community in Toronto
  • 82 new beds and 238 upgraded beds in a redevelopment of St. George Care Community in Toronto
  • 162 new beds and 94 upgraded beds at Southbridge Scarborough
  • 52 new beds and 60 upgraded beds at Norwood Nursing Home, licensed to Norwood Nursing Home Limited.

Ontario now has 24,958 new and 20,956 upgraded beds in the development pipeline — which means more than 83 percent of the 30,000 net new beds being delivered are in the planning, construction and opening stages of the development process.
