This webinar (33 min., in French) provides an overview of the Act to recognize and support caregivers, which passed into law on October 28, 2020. Together with the related national policy and government action plan, the Act will help guide the development of services for caregivers in the coming years. The webinar begins by providing context on the law’s implementation in Quebec, then looks at its key components. Longer-term objectives are touched on as part of the broader social project the law represents. The webinar ends with a reflection on caregiver support during the COVID-19 pandemic. It first aired in March 2021 as part of a Community of Practice (CoP) on Caregiving event.
