PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT UPDATES
Today, the Ontario government made amendments to the Retirement Homes Act, 2010 regulation, enabling the Retirement Homes Regulatory Authority (RHRA) to better support seniors living in retirement homes during the COVID-19 outbreak.
As of June 1, backcountry camping will be available at Ontario Parks, including access points, paddle and portage routes and hiking trails. Ontario Parks will also be expanding day-use activities to include picnicking and off-leash pet areas.
As Ontarians continue to work and learn from home, the Provincial government is extending the suspension of time-of-use electricity pricing to provide consumers with greater stability and predictability with their electricity bills.
