Caregivers in the Workplace Toolkit

In Ontario, there are four million unpaid caregivers and 69% of them are employed. Two-thirds of working caregivers have expressed concerns about managing their caregiving responsibilities when they return to the workplace ("post-COVID"), 30% are considering quitting to be able to provide better care to their family member or friend, and more than 50% wish they had more support from their employer. Given this data, the Ontario Caregiver Organization has created some resources.
