Ontario Nurses' Association's Day of Action to Protect Long Term Care is today.
Take action and send a message to Premier Ford to protect residents, nurses and health care workers in long term care.
The Ontario Nurses Association has three demands:
1) More full time Registered Nurse positions
2) A COVID fund for self-isolation and lost wages
3) The phasing out of private, for-profit long-term care
To provide safe care, nurses and health care professionals need safe working conditions, so spread the word and take action today.

Remember that all Occasional Teachers (daily and LTOs) must complete the mandatory online training modules by the end of the June 26th school day. You must also complete your annual WHMIS Review and Offence Declaration etc., all of which can be found in the Employee Portal.
Please email the office at or check past blogs if you require further details.
