Labour Market Information

In Canada, the number of older people is increasing – a great number of individuals are above age 65. Presently, more women work outside the home and can’t give full-time care to relatives who are old, sick or have a handicap. Also, the Ontario government is promoting home medical care like Aging at Home Strategy. This implies that more individuals may get medical care at home rather than at the hospitals. This may prompt more employment opportunities for PSWs.
