National Caregiver Day #CelebrateACaregiver

April 4, 2023
9:00 am - 10:00 am

Four million caregivers across Ontario provide an estimated 75 per cent of the care in our healthcare system. They play a critical role in providing physical, emotional, and mental support to family members, partners, and friends in need. While most caregivers have a positive outlook on their experience and a sense of fulfillment, two-thirds admit they had no choice but to assume the work of caregiving.

Join us on April 4th on National Caregiver Day to celebrate family caregivers! We will be hosting a live event where we will hear from caregivers and their caregiving journey, along with remarks from:

• Jennifer McKelvie, Deputy Mayor of the City of Toronto
• Amy Coupal, Chief Executive Officer of The Ontario Caregiver Organization (OCO)
• Samantha Peck, Executive Director at Family Councils Ontario (FCO)

The live event will be followed by a demonstration of some of the resources available to caregivers. The shared resources belong to organizational partners as part of The Toronto Caregiver Collaborative Forum.

This event will be in English only.

Sign up for latest resources, events and updates from the OCO delivered right to your inbox.
