Revera’s sale of 15 percent interest in 25 long-term care homes to Extendicare

Revera Inc. has sold its 15 percent ownership interest in 25 long-term care homes in Ontario and Manitoba to Extendicare Inc., which now owns them in a joint venture with Axium Infrastructure Inc., Revera’s previous joint venture partner.

The deal will support the future of long-term care in Ontario and Manitoba. The transaction marks the exit of Revera from its long time investment in operating and owning long-term care homes. While Revera is stepping away from day-to-day operations, the company will continue to advocate for, and use its sector-leading, in-house development capabilities to accelerate, the urgently needed redevelopment of aging long-term care homes. Long-term care homes owned by Revera in Alberta and British Columbia were sold in 2022.
