I would like to direct your attention to a study paper that has been produced … Care/Work examines to what extent the laws of British Columbia support caregivers of adult family members to balance paid work and unpaid care giving, and considers whether BC laws recognize the social value of unpaid care giving labour.” – from Executive Summary of the Report.

The  study paper identifies five areas in need of reform to better support family caregivers: employment law, human rights, tax policy, health policy and pensions.
