Employed Caregivers in Canada: Infographic Compilation

RAPP and the Vanier Institute have published a compilation of caregiving infographics.

May 15, 2023

We are pleased to announce the release of our latest co-publication on employed caregivers in Canada, produced in partnership with Research on Aging, Policies and Practice (RAPP). This compilation includes six infographics that each provide insight into various aspects of caregiving and on the value and contributions of family caregivers across Canada.

The infographics, which were created by Andrew Magnaye, Choong Kim, Jacquie Eales, and Janet Fast, utilize data from Statistics Canada’s 2018 General Social Survey on Caregiving and Care Receiving to update key indicators on working caregivers.

The infographics contained in this resource highlight the significant contributions that employed caregivers make to their families’ wellbeing, workplaces, and society. They also demonstrate how supporting employed caregivers makes good business sense, as flexible work arrangements are associated with talent retention, lower turnover costs, and more.
