Organizational Description: For over 60 years, the Long Term & Continuing Care Association of Manitoba (LTCAM)-a non-profit, membership-based organization-has been a valued adviser and partner in the promotion of safe care and living options for seniors living in Manitoba.

Incorporated in 1959, our mission has always been to improve the quality of care provided to long term and continuing care residents, and clients. The LTCAM introduced standards of care well before the provincial government outlined official standards. Each day, we care for Manitoba's most vulnerable seniors, many of whom reside in our residences. We also work closely with provincial long-term care providers across Canada through the Canadian Association for Long Term Care, and we continue to share information and education that uses the best national evidence available to improve quality of care for residents throughout the province and Canada.
