As part of a ‘Made-in-Markham’ housing strategy, the City demands from the provincial government’s Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care that they build/develop 5,000 new long-term care beds in Markham and York Region by end of year 2020 in order to alleviate the wait list of 3,434 seniors in Markham and a portion of the 32,775 seniors on the waiting list in Ontario (Source: Ontario Long Term Care Association, Oct. 2017).
