Established in 2000, the Canadian Caregiver Coalition (CCC) is a virtual alliance of diverse partner organizations that work collectively, and autonomously, to identify and respond to the needs of caregivers in Canada.
Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for family caregivers through advocacy and synergistic partnerships.
Together we strive to achieve our vision of “a Canada that recognizes, respects, and values the integral role of family caregivers in society”.
It’s not if, it’s when you will be a family caregiver
The Canadian Caregiver Coalition defines family caregivers as family members and other significant people (as identified by the care recipient) who provide care and assistance to individuals living with a debilitating physical, mental or cognitive condition.
Caregivers hail from all walks of life; often undertaking caregiving responsibilities due to sudden health crises, and commonly, the onset of chronic conditions.
