The 2008 Portraits of Home Care reflects the incredible advancements that home care programs have undergone in the past 5 years, identifies the current challenges and documents the vision of home care in our future health care system.  


Building on the CHCA’s 2003 Portraits of Home Care in Canada report, this updated report provides more recent and relevant information on public home care programs and strategic directions in health care across Canada. Information was collected using the same framework as in the 2003 Portraits document. Additional sections describing strategic priorities, technology, safety, health human resources and decision support systems were added to reflect the expanded role and new influencers affecting health care and home care. The basic framework for data collection included:

1. Governance and Organization

2. Services

3. Quality and Accountability

4. Initiatives

5. Challenges

6. Vision of Home Care

7. Last Word


In addition to the provincial and territorial home care programs this report also includes federally funded and administered home care programs - the First Nations and Inuit Home and Community Care program, the Veterans Independence Program, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Health Services Program and the Canadian Forces Health Services Program.
