The Ontario government is celebrating the ground-breaking of Generations, a new 122-bed long-term care home in Toronto. This new home is one more step forward in the government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 30,000 net new beds by 2028 and 28,000 upgraded long-term care beds across the province.

“I am pleased to celebrate the ground-breaking of this unique multigenerational campus, made possible in partnership with the City of Toronto and the Ismaili Council for Ontario,” said Premier Doug Ford. “Our government is undertaking the most ambitious long-term care building program in Canadian history and this project is just one more way we are delivering the quality care, and access to affordable housing, that seniors across Ontario deserve.”

The brand new Generations home will be licensed to Multi-Generational Housing and Community Centre Toronto, a not-for-profit organization, and is expected to welcome its first residents in early 2026. The home will provide 122 safe, modern long-term care beds in Toronto and will have specific design improvements such as semi-private and private rooms, no ward rooms, larger resident common areas and air conditioning throughout the home.

Generations will offer culturally appropriate services to the Ismaili community to ensure residents have access to the care they need. The home has also proposed to provide specialized health care, behavioural support and palliative care services, and be part of a campus of care which helps integrate the long-term care home into the broader health care system and ensures residents have access to the care they need.

“Our government has a plan to fix long-term care and a key part of that plan is building modern, safe, and comfortable homes for our seniors,” said Paul Calandra, Minister of Long-Term Care. “Today’s event is a significant milestone for Generations in Toronto. When the building is completed, 122 residents will have a new place to call home, near their family and friends.”

The government is fixing long-term care to ensure Ontario’s seniors get the quality of care and quality of life they need and deserve both now and in the future. This work is built on three pillars: staffing and care; accountability, enforcement, and transparency; and building modern, safe, comfortable homes for seniors.
