The Nova Scotia Government has cut funding to more than 100 long-term care facilities across the province. For two years, the Government “has cut more money from this nursing home than any other government has done…in the 34 years we have existed” says Anthony Taylor, Administrator of a long-term care facility.

CARP is very concerned with the cutbacks to these facilities and curious as to why the Government chose to limit the funding cuts to facilities which are non-unionized. We will be monitoring this situation closely and advocating for our members in Nova Scotia in September when our Vice-President of Advocacy and Director of Stakeholder Engagement meet with the Health Minister.
