Description
This policy round will describe the research and policy implications of a Healthcare Renewal Policy Analysis research grant focused on informing a caregivers’ strategy for Ontario. The project engaged researchers, policy makers, care providers and caregivers in consultations to explore how best to support caregivers. Join us for a discussion on the policy implications of this work, including: the role of businesses in ensuring a workplace culture that better addresses the needs of employed caregivers; providing opportunities for caregivers to have their voices heard and needs assessed around the delivery of home and community care; and implementing a caregiver tax credit in Ontario for low- and moderate-income caregivers. Our leading research and policy experts will tackle these issues and answer your questions in real time during the session.
