The Project to Date

On April 18th, 2018, the Ontario Ministry of Long-Term Care (“MOLTC”) awarded Magellan Community Care 256 cultural specific long-term care beds as part of an initiative to significantly increase the number of long-term care beds, across the province over the next five years.

In awarding 256 beds, the MOLTC required that the long-term care and services be culturally sensitive, for instance including (1) access to health professionals who speak Portuguese, (2) cultural and spiritual activities in a culturally sensitive environment, (3) social and recreational programs delivered in Portuguese, and (4) meals that include traditional dishes.

Less than a year later, on March 28th, 2019, the City of Toronto awarded Magellan Community Charities a parcel of vacant land at 640 Lansdowne Avenue, to be leased for 99 years at a rent of $1/year. This site is in the heart of the Portuguese-Canadian community where a high demand for long-term care services has long existed.
