Submissions to Government


A submission to government may take the form of a public letter or position statement intended to inform a decision-maker (e.g., a government minister) about Care Watch’s perspective, analysis, position, or policy respecting an issue, pending decision or decision-making process. It is an advocacy tool which we hope will influence the outcome or resolution of the issue or decision in favour of the principles advocated by Care Watch.


Care Watch’s Submission to Ontario’s 2020 Pre-Budget Hearing

Care Watch has provided input to Ontario’s 2020 Pre-Budget Hearings relating to funding of in-home and community support services. Our goal is to see that Ontario’s seniors receive the services they need to live safely at home and thrive in their communities. We ask key ministers to support funding of home care and community support services in the forthcoming budget.
