Long-term care and home care must be legislated

A rapidly aging population is an enormous challenge that requires bold solutions. The Quebec Government must no longer procrastinate to lay the foundations for an overall social project eagerly expected by the population. The awaited health reform cannot succeed without a Long-Term Care Act, which will provide the best possible protection for the users of the healthcare network.


  • 2016: the CPM adopted the principle of a long-term care act at its Symposium in Rouyn-Noranda. Since that day, the CPM has continued pressuring the Quebec Government for long-term care legislation.
  • 2018: During their Annual General Meeting in May, members approved a bill on long-term care drafted by the CPM to send to the Government.
  • 2021: The November Symposium addressed the future of long-term care and home care. It is becoming increasingly clear that a Long-term Care Act must include home care, medical care, palliative care, and medical aid in dying.
  • 2022: In August, the CPM and the FADOQ joined forces at a press conference to call the Government to implement home care on a larger scale. More and more voices require its future accomplishment. Hence the importance of acting coherently, with the necessary legal foundations an act would provide.
