Caregivers are essential partners in care, in every community across the Champlain region. Faced with unimaginable challenges, they make countless sacrifices to provide medical care, emotional support and daily assistance to those in need.

About 13 million Canadians have provided unpaid care to someone they know. It is estimated that the value of their work amounts to an economic contribution of roughly $25 billion annually across the country.

The Champlain CCAC is proud to organize the Heroes in the Home Caregiver Awards—a small gesture that allows us to thank a group of exceptional people.
