Fee Consultation

Welcome to RHRA’s 2022 Fee Consultation

Please note that RHRA is proposing a fee increase in 2022. The experience of residents and families during the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that RHRA must adapt its operations to be able to continue to protect residents’ safety and well-being. The activities needed to do this have increased significantly during the pandemic and are not expected to return to pre-pandemic levels.

Retirement home residents are entitled by law to feel and be safe in their home. In response to the needs of residents, increasing requests and expectations of residents, RHRA must have the ability to oversee the protections to which residents are entitled.

Feedback received during the consultation will be considered by RHRA in making a final decision regarding these fees.

Key Dates:

Consultation opened for comment:                                                                  August 31, 2022

Consultation closed:                                                                                        September 30, 2022
