Carers Canada (formally known as Canadian Caregiver Coalition), established in 2000, is an alliance of diverse partner organizations that work collectively, and autonomously, to identify and respond to the needs of carers in Canada. Carers Canada’s vision is “a Canada that recognizes, respects, and values the integral role of carers in society”. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for carers through synergistic partnerships and global advocacy that strengthens and honors the voice of carers.
SUPPORT FOR CAREGIVERS IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19
On top of all they do, our caregivers must now navigate the impact from COVID-19 as they support the vulnerable and most at-risk people in our communities. Now more than ever, we need to keep our caregivers at the forefront of our minds and show our support.
Time Counts is an Embracing CarersTM call to action which increases visibility of the caregivers’ role in supporting a loved one and raises awareness of how one can best support them. Embracing Carers™ is asking individuals to give their time to provide connection and support to a caregiver in their lives.
