Abstract
As the Canadian population ages, the demand for adequate long-term care (LTC) increases and with it, higher long-term care costs. The distribution of increased costs between Canadian seniors, their families, and Canadian governments is an important issue to resolve. This study examines existing LTC policies in order to systematically identify areas for reform, then develops and assesses policy options to guarantee that adequate LTC will be available, at a reasonable cost and appropriate efficacy, to every Canadian who requires it.
