What Do I Pay?

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) and the City of Thunder Bay provides funding for homes. The amount paid by residents for their accommodation is called the resident "co-payment".

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care sets accommodation co-payment rates. The document below shows resident co-payment rates effective July 1, 2017. The co-payment rates change from time to time (at a minimum, annually).

Residents pay based on their income up to a maximum amount.  Where a resident has low income, they are entitled to apply for a rate reduction. In which case, the  income tax assessment issued from Canada Customs and Revenue Agency are required. Pioneer Ridge Business Office can provide a rate reduction application form for residents/substitute decision maker to complete. The MOHLTC will determine the rate that applies according to your income status.
