There are over 500,000 young caregivers providing support to their families in Ontario. That’s 17% of Ontario’s 3.3 million caregivers. There is no data for young caregivers under the age of 15 but we know there are kids as young as 5-years-old in a caregiving role.
Young Caregivers Connect is a website made specifically for Ontario’s young caregivers. It’s a place where they can learn more about being a caregiver, find help and get connected with other young caregivers.
