Who has been consulted for the development of the Supportive Care Assistant program?
Initially, CICan staff consulted with a wide number of stakeholders from across Canada. The Government of Canada, in turn, consulted with the provinces and territories. Following that process, 14 college representatives from across Canada formed a working group under the direction on CICan to design the program. Each college was tasked to consult with their provincial stakeholders to collect input during the development of the learning competencies. Additionally, a survey was distributed to over 600 stakeholders to validate the competencies.
