Effie Triantafilopoulos photoAt today's Rotary Club of Hamilton AM meeting we were pleased to welcome Effie Triantafilopoulosco, MLA Member for Oakville North- Burlington.
Effie's current government responsibilities include: Vice-Chair, Standing Committee on Justice Policy
Member, Select Committee on Emergency Management Oversight, Member, Standing Committee on Social Policy and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Long-Term Care.
Effie spent most of her time updating club members on the current government's efforts to strengthen the long-term care system in Ontario.  Of particular importance is the plan to dramatically increase the number of hours of direct care that are provided to residents.  There are plans to update the existing older LTC homes that have more than 2 residents to a room.  Also, in tandem with home modernization, an increase in the number of LTC beds in Ontario is being implemented.
Club members appreciated Effie's willingness to include a visit to a Hamilton AM meeting in her busy schedule
