Why use the CGPL? • To frame development of programs and policies that value and support caregivers of older Canadians • To critique proposed policies and programs for potential unintended negative effects on caregivers • To assess policies or programs’ promotion of caregivers’ well-being • To identify gaps in current policies, programs and activities that affect caregivers • To guide studies of the impact of programs on caregivers • To develop a policy response to an issue or need
