The global pandemic, emerging technologies, and social and economic trends changed how we live and work, impacting employers and healthcare workers. The CHCA led a national initiative to share ideas on designing, establishing, and maintaining great workplaces where employees are valued, respected, and nurtured.

Technology in the Workplace

Our national campaign, “THE TECHNOLOGY FACTOR,” stimulated discussions on the impact and potential of technology in home care today and in the future. Despite varied contexts among providers nationwide, the value and power of technology in home and community care became evident.
We invite you to read the blogs from recognized subject matter experts on digital health in home and community care.

Supporting Working Caregivers

Over 6 million Canadians balance their paid work with unpaid care responsibilities. Employee caregivers made up 35% of the total Canadian workforce. Many of these individuals leave the workplace, reduce their work hours, or change jobs and accept a lower income to balance their work and care responsibilities. This results in decreased skilled workers, greater absenteeism, and increased costs for extended health benefit plans.

Learn about the facts, the impact, and the evidence for all employers to support their employee caregivers.
