Employed caregivers contribute to their families’ wellbeing, workplaces, and society, but research shows that balancing paid employment with caregiving can affect the wellbeing of employees and their families.

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—has published a new infographic, How does caregiving impact paid work for employed women and men?, to increase awareness of these consequences.

This is the second in a series of six infographics RAPP is releasing on caregiving in Canada. The first, Who are employed caregivers in Canada?, was published in November 2022.

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.
