Family Council

Family Council

Family Council is a self led and autonomous group consisting of volunteer family members and friends of residents, past and present. We offer advocacy, education, and support for residents, their families, and friends. Some of our accomplishments include education initiatives, financial support, government liaison/advocacy, and staff education/support.

Family Council Corner

Just after you sign in to visit your loved one, is the Family Council Corner. Here you can find our monthly meeting minutes, a binder with past important Family Council information, and the Compassionate Fund Box. This is a grant program funded and managed by our group to assist Residents who struggle financially. Applications can be found at the Family Council Corner and in each Home entrance.


The Family Council also provides many opportunities for education and information on the operation of Trinity Village Care Centre and Long Term Care Homes in general. The meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month starting at 6:30 p.m. and are currently being conducted online by Zoom. Please contact us if you wish to attend and we will email you the link. Family Council takes a hiatus during the summer months, no meetings in July and August. We resume in September.

Residents’ Council

Residents' Council is an independent, self-determining group made up of only residents of a long-term care home. The Council is intended and designed to form the collective voice of all residents who reside in the LTC home, whether or not they attend meetings. All residents have the right to participate in the Residents' Council.

Through the Fixing Long-Term Care Act, 2021, every licensee of a long-term care home must ensure that a Residents' Council is established at the home. Every licensee of a long-term care home must also appoint a Residents' Council Assistant who is acceptable to that council to assist the Residents' Council.

Trinity Village Residents’ Council welcomes any resident of the Care Centre who wishes to participate in the meetings and vote. Matters requiring determination by the Resident’s Council shall be decided by the majority of the members attending a meeting at which a matter is presented or considered.

Trinity Village Residents’ Council meetings occur the first Thursday of each month.

Trinity Village Care Centre is a member of the Ontario Association of Residents’ Councils.
