A national caregiving strategy is coming — what could it mean for Canadians?

Retrieved on: 
Sunday, June 2, 2024

Although still in the consultative stage, a national caregiving strategy could transform the Canadian care economy and improve the lives of caregivers.

Key Points: 
  • Although still in the consultative stage, a national caregiving strategy could transform the Canadian care economy and improve the lives of caregivers.
  • Most importantly, a national caregiving strategy will set a standard for services and supports available to Canadian family caregivers, as well as the working environment of paid care workers.

Caregiving in Canada

  • There is a gendered element to care, with over half of all women in Canada providing unpaid care.
  • Caregiving is typically linked to Canada’s aging population; however, there is growing recognition that caregivers care for people of all ages and are of all ages themselves.
  • Many Canadians provide care for the people they love, but caregiving can be physically and emotionally taxing.
  • This is not surprising, as researchers have declared unpaid family caregiving as a global public health issue.

Why do we need a strategy? Why now?

  • It was first floated in 2009 as per the recommendations of the Senate Special Committee on Aging.
  • Now, 15 years later, Canada is one of the few high-income countries that do not have a national caregiving strategy.
  • In addition to not wanting to lag behind other high-income countries, the challenges facing Canadian caregivers have become more apparent in recent years.

What could it look like?

  • Many countries offer extra financial supports to caregivers.
  • In addition to tax benefits and credits, some countries, such as Australia and Ireland, provide a caregiver allowance.
  • This can help offset out-of-pocket expenses or financial losses associated with time spent away from work.
  • Though there is still work to be done to bring a national caregiving strategy to fruition in Canada, the possibility is exciting.
