On the first Tuesday of April, Canadians come together to recognize family members, friends, neighbours and other significant people who provide unpaid caring role for someone who needs help because of a physical or cognitive condition, an injury or a chronic life-limiting illness. National Carers Day encourages all Canadians to recognize and celebrate the outstanding contribution carers make to our nation.

Between November 2015 and February 2016, The Caring Experience project was fortunate enough to meet family caregivers across Ontario through in-person workshops, online surveys, and in-depth journey mapping activities. This first phase of The Caring Experience project has now come to an end.
During this period, we met 100 caregivers at our 8 workshops across the province, heard 18 journey mapping stories, and received over 300 responses to our mini online surveys.
Thank you to everyone who shared their experience as a family caregiver!
