Full text: Motion 1080 on the future of continuing care in Yukon

THAT this House urges the Government of Yukon to implement a continuum of health and housing options to support Yukoners to age in place safely and with dignity by:

(1) halting all work on the proposed Whistle Bend continuing care facility until such time as meaningful consultations provide evidence of a need for this facility, including its size, location and model of care;

(2) engaging in meaningful consultation with Yukon seniors, elders, their families and communities throughout Yukon;

(3) engaging in meaningful consultation with Yukon health care professionals; and

(4) working in collaboration with Yukon people, health care professionals, and supportive housing experts on all future continuing care projects and initiatives.
