Ontario Budget 2018 – New Investments in Hospice Palliative Care

Hospice Palliative Care Ontario appreciates the Ontario Government’s continued commitment to supporting quality community hospice palliative care.  The demand for care is increasing with the aging population and new funding announced in the Ontario Budget will help people receive care in their homes, whenever possible.  The Government has also demonstrated tremendous compassion by committing to invest in developing models for perinatal hospice, when bereavement begins before birth.  HPCO will continue to work with Government as a valued partner in supporting people and their families with quality and cost effective care in the journey to the end of life.
