“Guide the Canada Social Transfer and all new investments in social infrastructure,”

Canadian Association of Social Workers submits to the new government a proposal,  A New Social Care Act for Canada

Like the Canada Health Act, CASW proposes that a Social Care Act for Canada be grounded in ten principles that would not impose restrictions or regulations on the provinces and territories, but rather serve as a catalyst for renewed federal leadership to support the delivery of equitable services to all populations across Canada.

Ten Principles of New Social Care Act for Canada

1. Public administration

6. Comprehensiveness

2. Universality

7. Portability

3. Accessibility

8. Fairness

4. Effectiveness

9. Accountability and Transparency

5. Rights and Responsibility

10. Comparability

With the commitment to a new Health Accord and renewed promise of national leadership, CASW urges the new Liberal government to boldly adopt a new Social Care Act for Canada to help guide the Canada Social Transfer and all new investments in social infrastructure.
