Legal Opinion on Retirement Homes Act (Bill 21): Concerns for Human Rights and Public Interest

Posted: May 31, 2010

(May 31, 2010) According to the legal opinion from Sack Golblatt Mitchell LLP, “This Bill raises significant questions in relation to safeguarding the public interest in regulating Ontario health facilities and respecting fundamental human rights. It is to be hoped that the Legislature will subject the provisions of the draft Bill to more thorough scrutiny to ensure that residents of Ontario retirement homes are adequately protected.” It is expected that the Government will pass the legislation this week. The OHC has written a letter to all MPPs asking them to vote against the bill.
