A CARER-FRIENDLY
WORKPLACE
STANDARD

Carers Canada is part of a multi-sectorial research program to spread and scale a carer-friendly workplace standard, known as the ‘Carer-Inclusive and Accommodating Organizations’ Standard (CSAB701-17).

The standard, developed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Group with McMaster University, can be used by employers to meet legal requirements, enhance work-life balance for worker-carers*, improve workforce retention and reduce health care costs.

*Worker-carers are employees balancing paid work with unpaid caring responsibilities.
