Connecting People to Home and Community Care Act, 2020 (formerly Bill 175)

Bill 175 – the Connecting People to Home and Community Care Act, 2020 – was passed and received Royal Assent on July 8, 2020. Despite significant recommended changes from a wide variety of stakeholders, Bill 175 was passed with only minor government amendments.

The government claims that the new legislation will make it easier for people to access home and community care in hospital, primary care, or community settings; help people connect with their care providers; and provide more choice for people with high needs to receive care in new community settings. However, Bill 175 did not support these claims.
