The Corporate Alliance Partnership program is designed to provide a year-long platform for three commercial partners to work closely with the Ontario Long Term Care Association in delivering high-quality programming and educational opportunities to its membership. The program encompasses a multi-pronged, innovative approach, which allows the Association to support its members in knowledge-building and to provide learning opportunities that promote safe, quality long-term care for Ontario's seniors.
"The CAP program has been developed to provide our Commercial Members with a heightened opportunity to align with the Ontario Long Term Care Association through exclusive, customized marketing platforms throughout the year," said Candace Chartier, CEO of the Ontario Long Term Care Association. "Their support allows us to build excellence in the long-term care sector through our leadership, analysis, advocacy, and a variety of member services."
