How do LTC expenditures in Ontario compare with other provinces?

A new Statistics Canada report on residential care facilities indicates that expenditures per resident per day in "homes for the aged" (the phrase used by Stats Can to mean a range of LTC facilities) are considerably less in Ontario than in Canada as a whole. Quite a bit less, in fact: $28 per  resident per day.

All other provinces, except for PEI and New Brunswick, have higher expenditures.  Some provinces are considerably higher (Quebec $254.30, Saskatchewan $216.70, Alberta $201.80).

At the same time, income from residents for accommodation makes up a much larger portion of total income in Ontario homes for the aged than in homes for the aged in Canada as a whole.
