Unifor proudly celebrates Continuing Care Assistant (CCA) Week, October 10-15, 2022, organized by the Health Association of Nova Scotia (HANS) as part of Continuing Care Month.

"We share our gratitude and respect for CCAs this week as we continue to support these workers in gaining the recognition and working conditions they deserve,” said Lana Payne, Unifor National President. “I want to personally thank CCAs for their dedication and deep commitment to care. Our communities are more compassionate because of you.”

This year's Continuing Care Month theme is Continuing Care: Share Your Care. According to HANS, the month-long campaign is about “demonstrating that the continuing care sector has become a specialty field of employment for those pursuing a challenging and rewarding career opportunity.”

“This week, and every week, we share our appreciation for CCAs and the dignity, safety, and well-being they provide long-term care residents,” said Jennifer Murray, Unifor Atlantic Regional Director. “We are happy to share our care for CCAs as they share their care for others every day.”
