We conduct regular inspections of licensed care facilities. An inspection report is provided to the facility after each inspection that outlines their compliance with the requirements of the Community Care and Assisted Living Act and the Residential Care Regulations. With the exception of child and youth residential care and community living homes, residential care facilities are required to post our most recent routine inspection report.
