The Ontario Caregiver Organization (OCO) exists to support Ontario’s
3.3 million caregivers; ordinary people who provide physical and/or
emotional support to a family member, partner, friend or neighbour.
The OCO helps to improve the caregiving experience by providing
one point of access to information, services and supports that
empower and enable caregivers to be successful in their role. Where
gaps exist in caregiver programs and services, the OCO partners with
caregivers, health care providers and other organizations to find new
and innovative ways to bridge those gaps so all caregivers, regardless
of age, condition or geographic location have access to the help they
need. Established in 2018, the OCO is a not-for-profit entity funded by
the Government of Ontario.
