Caregiver Awareness Month 2017 -- #CGAware2017 on social media

This year we turned to social media and provided a special section of our website to celebrate Caregiver Awareness Month. Have a look at the different content of our awareness campaign here.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who joined the conversation and helped us raise awareness about all that unpaid caregivers do for their loved ones and communities.

 

On Tuesday, May 30th, Caregiver's Nova Scotia was invited to appear before the Canadian House of Commons’ Standing Committee on the Status of Women on the topic of the Economic Security of Women in Canada. We were asked to speak on the issue of how women's economic security is affected by unpaid caregiving. You can:

All staff members contributed to our submissions to the Committee. This was a terrific opportunity for us, and a great way to end Caregiver Awareness Month 2017.
