The Stellar Certification Program will recognize long-term care (LTC) homes for their workplace excellence. The program is national in scope and the only one of its kind in Canada.
LTC homes will be able to become Stellar certified by showing adherence to the six Stellar standards of what makes an ideal workplace for nurses.
The Stellar program will recognize LTC homes that:
- Promote workplace safety
- Ensure adequate staffing with the right mix of nursing expertise and roles
- Support nurses’ development through education and professional development
- Ensure an inclusive workforce that reflects Canada’s diverse population
