Young Caring in Canada: Opportunity Gained and Lost

OTTAWA, July 3, 2012 /CNW/ - When we think of people providing care to adults and seniors, we tend to  picture an older family member in mid-to-late career or in retirement, yet researchers have found that approximately 12% of young Canadians aged 12-17 are "young carers".
