The Streetsville area of Mississauga has been promised 138 new and 118 upgraded long-term care beds in a facility expected to be completed sometime in the next several years.
Construction of a new building for Streetsville Care Community long-term care home will begin in spring 2023, Ontario Minister of Long-term Care Rod Phillips said Wednesday in Streetsville, where he joined Mayor Bonnie Crombie and Mississauga-Streetsville MPP Nina Tangri to announce the new and upgraded beds.
“Streetsville Community Care has been a significant part of our city for 45 years,” said Tangri. “It is an important part of our community and I’m thrilled this facility will be benefitting from our government’s commitment to fix long-term care across the province.”

Nitin Jain, president and CEO of Sienna Senior Living, which operates the Streetsville long-term care home, said the facility and its residents are part of the fabric of Mississauga.
“With our redevelopment plans, we will transform this home into a new modern campus of care that will serve seniors for generations to come,” said Jain. “When the doors to this beautiful, new care community open, members of Mississauga’s diverse community will receive culturally specific programs and services so that they feel at home with us.”
The investment in Streetsville is part of the Ontario government’s $6.4 billion commitment to build more than 30,000 new beds and some 28,000 upgraded long-term care beds across Ontario by 2028.
“Our government has a plan to fix long-term care and a key part of that plan is building modern, safe and comfortable homes for our seniors,” said Phillips. “When Streetsville Care Community is completed, it will be a place for 256 seniors to call home, near their family and friends.”
