SEIU Healthcare represents over 60,000 frontline healthcare workers in the hospital, long-term care, and home and community care sectors across Ontario. Our main objective is to ensure our members are respected, protected, and paid what they deserve.

For the past 70 years, we have advocated for fair and equitable working conditions to improve our members’ well-being both inside and outside of their workplaces. We bring their voices to the government and the powers that be, and aren’t afraid to share their real-life stories with the media.

We believe that the strength of our union is determined by the strength of our membership, which is why we invest in bold initiatives and programs that provide education, build leadership skills, and promote solidarity.

New Members of the SEIU Healthcare Family

As Canada’s Healthcare Union, we are constantly looking to make a difference for every healthcare worker in Ontario. This year, we are proud to welcome thousands of new members to SEIU Healthcare. These workers voted “YES” to becoming unionized with us so that together we can fight for respect, protection and pay, not only for their workplace, but the entire Ontario healthcare system.
