Across the province each year, over one million people receive home care and community support services – and the need is growing. The Ontario Community Support Association (OCSA) champions a strong, sustainable home and community support sector for all Ontarians. Our not-for-profit, community-based member organizations provide a wide variety of health and wellness services which help a full range of clients, including seniors and people with disabilities, remain independent in their own homes and communities. These compassionate and cost-effective services improve quality of life and prevent unnecessary hospitalizations, emergency room visits and premature institutionalization. They are the key to a sustainable health care system for Ontario.
A respected leader for over 20 years, OCSA advocates on behalf of our members and their clients to government and other stakeholders. OCSA also creates partnerships, facilitates knowledge sharing, and offers training, resources and benefits that enable our members to continue to provide vital services.
