Long Term Care Directory – Information and Reports
If you have questions about the data in the Long-Term Care Directory, contact our office at 1-877-952-3181.
If you have questions about a particular care home, contact the facility directly.
The British Columbia Long-Term Care Directory, formerly known as the Long-Term Care Facilities Quick Facts Directory, lists information about publicly subsidized long-term care homes in British Columbia. It contains information from a variety of sources, including the facilities themselves, the Ministry of Health, health authorities, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC). It 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 Long-Term Care Directory was first published in hard copy in 2016 and 2017. After that, it became an online directory that is refreshed once a year or 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 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 December 14, 2021. New content in this update includes:
- wait times to enter long-term care,
- more detailed data for direct care hours,
- percent of residents in a wheelchair,
- percent of residents with falls,
- percent of residents with a worsened pressure ulcer, and
- COVID-19 vaccination coverage for residents. (These data are subject to change and may be updated.)
