Today Ontario Bill 7 comes into effect, requiring hospitals to charge patients $400 if they refuse to go to a long-term care home or other service against their will.

Under the Bill, Southern Ontario patients can be transferred  to a facility up to 70 km away.

In Northern Ontario, patients can be transferred up to 150 km away, or if there are no beds available, any distance.

If a patient refuses to go, the hospital is required to charge them $400 per day.
