Community Services Minister Denise Peterson-Rafuse

The province is taking immediate action to address serious issues identified in a report on Braemore Home Corporation's programs and operations, released today.

Effective immediately, the province is suspending Braemore's licence and appointing the Cape Breton District Health Authority's Board of Directors to act as the Sydney facility's interim board.

Community Services Minister Denise Peterson-Rafuse says the first priority is the care and well-being of residents and that the province is acting immediately to address Braemore's most serious issues.

The province has formed a team of experts to develop a strategy to address issues at Braemore.
