​​HRPA achieves Canadian Compassionate Company (CCC) designation - Canadian Compassionate Companies (CCC) is a designation for Canadian employers who support their employees who have taken on the vital role of caring for a seriously ill loved one. Employers have an important role to play in supporting their employees who have taken on this role, and the Champion’s Council is delighted that HRPA meets the criteria.


An aging population means ever greater numbers of older workers are balancing work and caregiving responsibilities for family and friends with illness, chronic conditions and/or disability. This new reality has impacts for both employers and caregivers.
