French long-term care training

By Rosalind Russell – Ontario is investing over $2.5 million over the next two years to train 90 French-speaking long-term care staff, like resident support personnel and dietary aides, to become personal support workers. 
The expanded Learn and Earn Accelerated Program will be done through College Boréal, which officials say already has existing partnerships with 26 long-term care homes across the province, including Sudbury, Hearst, Nipissing, Kapuskasing, and Timmins. 
College Boréal President, Daniel Giroux, says as life expectancy increases in Ontario, it’s important to train more specialists to meet the needs of our aging population.
