Personal care homes are licensed under The Personal Care Homes Act. Personal care homes must operate according to the requirements under the Act, Personal Care Homes Regulations and Licensees' Handbook.
The Ministry of Health is responsible for licensing and monitoring personal care homes to ensure that the residents who live in these homes receive safe and appropriate care in a safe and appropriate environment. Personal care homes are regularly inspected by a team of personal care home consultants who work at the Ministry of Health.
A personal care home licence can be amended, suspended or cancelled if the licensee does not operate according to the requirements under The Personal Care Homes Act.
