Ontario Policy Discussion Update

October 10, 2020

As the upcoming Liberal Party of Canada National Convention (April 9-10, 2021) will be focused on policy, the members of the Policy Committee of the Senior Liberals’ Commission – Ontario Section were deeply engaged in developing resolutions to bring to the floor of the convention.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, SLCO identified as its priority issues Long Term Care, Aging in Place for Seniors, Pension Protection and Teleworking. The arrival of the Pandemic made the issues of Long Term Care and Aging in Place even more urgent. As part of its process, SLCO consulted with EDAs and other Commissions, garnering endorsement of its resolutions – particularly the resolution on Long Term Care.

As a result of this hard work by many Senior Registered Liberals, and discussion among its members, SLCO submitted three resolutions to the SLC National Policy discussion. Two of these resolutions have now moved to the national LPC forum for discussion and voting.

If policy is a passion of yours, the Senior Liberals’ Commission offers a good way to get involved and make a difference. Every Registered Liberal who has reached 60 years of age is, by definition, a member of the Senior Liberals’ Commission.
