About this Table

Content and description

Data about the experience citizens reported while receiving home support services. First, key indicators (identical to the 2018 edition key indicators) are presented to allow easy comparison.

Indicators are organized by the types of services received, availability of services, availability of information, language of service, experience with home support workers, experience with services, safety, and satisfaction with the services received. 

Why it is important

By better understanding the experience of citizens with home support services, we can better assess the quality of services. This also encourages those responsible for the programs to create performance targets based on the survey indicators.

Availability of the data

The information for this data table is available at different geographical levels as well as by demographic groups. More information is available on our Home Care Survey page.

Note about 2021 data

Results from the 2021 edition of the Home Care Survey should be interpreted in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March 2020, our health care system has adapted and evolved to respond to COVID-19, which includes home care services providers.
