As part of Ontario’s COVID-19 fall preparedness plan, “Keeping Ontarians Safe: Preparing for Future Waves of COVID-19”, the provincial government is investing $52.5 million to recruit, retain and support over 3,700 more frontline health care workers and caregivers.

The plan intends to ensure that our health care system can safely meet surges in demand with high-quality care for patients and long-term care residents.

Personal Support Workers (PSWs) and supportive care workers will receive an allocation of $26.3 million including the following:

$14 million for the Personal Support Worker training funds to continue training PSWs in the home and community care and long-term care sectors;


$10.3 million for the new Personal Support Worker Return of Service Program, to recruit and retain recent graduates to work in long-term care homes and in the home and community care sectors.

This program will provide a $5,000 incentive to 2,000 recent graduates for a six-month commitment to work in these settings;


$1.3 million to train 160 supportive care workers to provide basic home support services; and


$700,000 in accelerated PSW training for 220 students with prior health experience to practice in Ontario.
