2022 Ontario Election Toolkit

As the voice of caregivers in Ontario, we are calling on all parties to make caregivers a priority in this election. 

The official election period will commence on Wednesday, May 4th, with the election itself taking place on Thursday, June 2nd. This is a vital opportunity for caregivers to make our voices heard, and to push for real change. After the hardships of the last two years, and the crucial role that caregivers have played in sustaining some of the most vulnerable Ontarians, caregiver issues should be front and centre in this election.


 

Your vote, and your voice, is the most powerful tool we have for making change. The stories of caregivers, and our passion to make a better system for those who come after us, can open minds and hearts, and prepare the way for a future in which caregivers are respected, valued, and truly supported.

To support you in making your voice heard in this election period, OCC’s Research and Advocacy Committee has prepared an Election Toolkit for Caregivers. The Toolkit is designed to make it easy for you to engage with political candidates in the ways that are most effective and comfortable for you, recognizing the many demands on your time.
