Libby Znaimer is joined by Marissa Lennox, Chief Policy Officer of CARP, and caregivers Sal Amenta and Caron Leid.
CARP has launched #credit4caregivers – a national campaign and video to push for caregiving as an election issue this coming October.
CARP is asking Canada’s federal leaders to make the Canada Caregiver Tax credit a refundable credit.
More than 8 million Canadians are informal caregivers to family and friends. More than a million of them are, themselves, over 65 and they save our health system $25 Billion a year. Ms. Lennox says that those numbers should add up to an election issue.
