To better understand the current experiences of caregivers and care providers across Canada, the Canadian Centre for Caregiving Excellence worked with Leger Communications to develop and deliver a pan-Canadian survey.

The National Caregiving Survey summary of findings is the first data release from this survey.

Initial data highlights:

  • 76% of care providers and 61% of caregivers say that policy related to caregiving is important to how they vote.
  • 90% of caregivers need broader financial support
  • 94% of caregivers need better access to home care services 
  • 64% of care providers say higher pay is needed for job satisfaction
  • Only 25% of care providers feel supported by governments

CCCE will be releasing a full data report in spring 2024.
