Canadian Caregiving Summit

Ottawa, Ontario

In celebration of its first anniversary, the CCCE is hosting the Canadian Caregiving Summit – a three-day hybrid event in Ottawa, Ontario, from November 6 to 8, 2023.

To understand the impacts of providing care, it is essential to understand the experiences of both caregivers and care providers (i.e., those in paid care roles such as personal support workers and direct support professionals). The Summit will explore topics through the lens of all those who provide care across the lifespan, including those from LGBTQ+, Indigenous and racialized communities and the additional barriers they face as caregivers.

The Summit will include keynote speakers, plenary sessions and panel discussions on the most pressing issues faced by caregivers and care providers across Canada. Delegates will also participate in facilitated working sessions to build the foundation of a national caregiving strategy.

CCCE has assembled members of its advisory council and Canadian Caregiver Advocacy Network to guide content for the event.

Canada could be the greatest place in the world to give and receive care. CCCE invites everyone across the country interested in building a better future of care to join the Canadian Caregiving Summit to work toward a future where care is valued.
