2022 Ontario Budget: Home Care Investments and Seniors Care at Home Tax Credit

Statement released by Home Care Ontario:

Today is a watershed moment for the more than 90 per cent of seniors who want to age at home. The Government’s $1 billion investment in home care along with the new Seniors Care at Home Tax Credit announced in the budget will help make that dream a reality.

These investments make Ontario a leader in prioritizing home care. Like the extremely successful Home-Support Services tax credit found in Quebec, Ontario’s new tax credit will help seniors live more independently, remain in their homes for longer, and avoid accidents and illnesses that could cause them to seek institutional care.

On behalf of those everyday Ontarians, Home Care Ontario applauds Premier Ford, Deputy Premier Elliott and Minister Bethlenfalvy for the historic investments.

Home Care Tax Credit

How Ontarians can help influence government

Home Care Ontario is pleased to announce that we are asking the Ontario Government to consider a Home Care Tax Credit in the Spring 2021 Budget.

And now we need your help!

Introducing a tax credit is one of the best ways the government can help support seniors living at home, and we know we need thousands of seniors to tell them this is the case!

Please feel free to send this information to your friends, family, groups and communities that you feel would benefit from a Home Care Tax Credit.

Please take a moment and visit know to send a letter to the province right now and join the chorus of seniors and their families calling for this important tax credit.

COVID-19 has demonstrated just how vital home care services are in keeping seniors healthy and safe. Across Ontario, family-funded home care services help seniors to live more independently, remain in their homes for longer, and avoid accidents and illnesses that could cause them to leave their homes unnecessarily. This is why we are calling on the Ontario Government to create a Home Care Tax Credit for family-funded home care services.

Please, visit and with a few simple clicks you can send a letter of support to the province today.

This will go a long way towards helping us achieving our goal of building an Ontario where every senior can live at home for as long as possible.
