The British Columbia Long-Term Care and Assisted Living Directory, formerly known as the Long-Term Care Directory, lists information about publicly subsidized long-term care facilities and registered publicly subsidized assisted living residences in B.C. This is the first year that the directory includes registered publicly funded assisted living residences.

The information is compiled from several sources including: the facilities/residences, the Ministry of Health, health authorities, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC). The directory also contains links to facility level results from our Residential Care Survey conducted between September 2016 and May 2017. Excluded from the directory are facilities that offer specialized services to unique populations that are not part of traditional long-term care for seniors.

The Directory was first published in hard copy in 2016 and 2017. After that, it became an online directory that is refreshed once a year and updated if a facility reports a material change in their information. The most recently completed fiscal year of data is included in the directory. To ensure privacy of individuals, some data has been suppressed for facilities/residences with a small number of residents (usually less than 5). This is the same standard used by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI).

The latest update was published on October 24, 2022, and includes the following new content:

  • Information about Assisted Living residences
  • First Nations territory where the long-term care facility or assisted living residence operates
  • The proportion of residents in long-term care taking antipsychotics with or without a diagnosis of psychosis (previously only reported those without a diagnosis)
