About the CHCA
The Canadian Home Care Association (CHCA) is dedicated to ensuring the availability of accessible, responsive home care and community supports to enable people to safely stay in their homes with dignity, independence and quality of life.
As a not-for-profit association, CHCA members include representatives from government (federal, provincial and territorial), administration organizations, service providers, researchers, educators and others with an interest in home care.
The CHCA is a catalyst for advancing excellence in home and continuing care. On behalf of our membership, the CHCA funds and manages projects that address pan-Canadian priorities in the home care sector. A recognized and respected facilitator; the CHCA builds connections across the country and coordinates sharing of information and promising practices.
As a national association, the CHCA is a unifying force that amplifies our members' individual voices to influence national policy directions on key professional and political issues. Our work is guided by four strategic pillars:
- Leadership - initiate conversations that catalyze change.
- Advocacy - inform and influence policy and practice.
- Awareness - increase the understanding of the role and value of home care.
- Knowledge - facilitate continuous learning through partnerships and networking.
