Stop Competitive Bidding in Homecare Join CUPE Ontario on Facebook Join CUPE Ontario on Twitter Join CUPE Ontario on YouTube Join CUPE Ontario on Flickr


Ontario's home care system, already damaged by the McGuinty government's continuation of Mike Harris' contracting out policy, may be only weeks away from further harm if the province lifts its ban on competitive bidding when service contracts expire March 31.

CUPE Ontario and the Ontario Health Coalition are demanding that the moratorium on competitive bidding be made permanent and the government start rebuilding a system of direct home care service rather than continue to expand in the contracting out regime brought in by Mike Harris' Conservative government.

Last week's news conference in Brockville was the launch of a province-wide media tour by CUPE Ontario in partnership with the Ontario Health Coalition (OHC).
