Policies Supporting Informal Caregivers across Canada
The elderly population of Canada is soaring, and the Government is trying to ameliorate the policies and the conditions of the field, as in the past the sector was neglected. Care workers appear to experience anxiety, burnout, social exclusion, lack of education, low wages or provide unpaid voluntary services. Developed countries have taken policies to support informal caregivers by enhancing their legal and insurance protection and the Canadian Government in turn is following up those critical measures. This published paper analyses in depth the current policies and identifies any potential legal barriers.
