The RHRA’s central role is to inform, educate and protect seniors living in retirement homes across Ontario. That’s why it’s important to fully understand the Retirement Home Act, 2010 (the Act) and encourage open dialogue with all stakeholders about its function and interpretation.
In this section, you’ll find resources that will help articulate the Act in clear and simple terms as well as a detailed summary of our partnerships and affiliations.
Understanding the Act
Plain Language Act
RHRA provides an overview of the Act in the plain language guide in order to give readers a basic understanding or familiarity with the Act. This guide explains the standards set out in the Act. Remember that it is an overview and you are still encouraged to consult the Act and its regulations.
Legislation & Regulations
In addition to the Act, legislation and regulations cover important areas like, resident’ rights, standards, safety plans, care services, etc.
The RHRA’s network of partnerships spans a variety of stakeholder relationships. These relationships serve unique purposes such as providing awareness, understanding compliance, advice on best practices, and residential protection.
