On September 1st, Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) announced that it will be leading the development of a national occupational standard (NOS) for personal care providers (also called personal support workers, health care aides, and other titles).

CanAge CEO Laura Tamblyn Watts has been appointed to the National Advisory Board guiding the development of these new standards, which will create a comprehensive definition of what it means to work as a personal care provider and identify the skills, knowledge, and abilities required to succeed in the role. The standard will help employers, job seekers, workers, students, and educators make informed decisions about hiring, skills training, and career choices.

The Board met on September 14th to kick off this important project.

We’ll provide updates as they come!
