Infographic: Economic Contributions of Employed Caregivers

Research on Aging, Policies and Practice has published new data on the economic contributions of caregivers.

May 4, 2023

Employed caregivers contribute to their families’ wellbeing, workplaces, and society. New research from Research on Aging, Policies and Practice (RAPP)—a research centre based at the University of Alberta focused on the wellbeing of older adults and family/friend caregivers—also shows that they make significant contributions to the Canadian economy.

To shed light on this important issue, RAPP, in collaboration with the Vanier Institute and other project partners, has published a new infographic, How much do employed caregivers contribute to the Canadian economy?

This is part of a series of infographics RAPP is releasing on caregiving in Canada. The other infographics can be found on the RAPP website, along with a library of resources on caregiving in Canada.

Co-created by Andrew Magnaye, Choong Kim, Jacquie Eales, and Janet Fast, this infographic provides updates to key indicators on working caregivers based on analyses of Statistics Canada’s 2018 General Social Survey on Caregiving and Care Receiving.
