National Long-Term Care Services Standard

The Standards Council of Canada (SCC), Health Standards Organization (HSO) and Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group) are working collaboratively on developing two new national standards for LTC that will be shaped by the needs of residents, families and Canada’s LTC workforce.

The standards will address the delivery of safe, reliable and high-quality LTC services (HSO) as well as the operation and infection prevention and control (IPC) practices in LTC homes (CSA Group).

This website outlines the main features of HSO’s CAN/HSO 21001:2022 – Long-Term Care Services National Standard of Canada (National Long-Term Care Services Standard). HSO will begin developing this standard in March 2021 and aims to launch a public review of a draft standard in late 2021 or early 2022.
