Winter 2022 Newsletter

Who We Are

A national group of community college educators who, like you, teach HCA, PSWs and CCAs. Our goal is to collaborate on standardization of education for this sector and to connect with our educational colleagues across the country.

If this newsletter was sent to you directly from CACCE it is because you are on our mailing list as a full time or part time educator teaching in a support worker program.

YOU are a member of CACCE. To find out more about what this free membership means visit our website.


Executive Team

We currently have 19 Regional Representatives who make up our Executive team. These dedicated volunteers have, despite having challenging teaching portfolios committed to building the CACCE network and championing the plight of support workers in Canada.

We encourage you to visit our website to see who your Regional Representative is and to peruse the report they created to outline PSW/HCA/CCA education and work in your province/territory.

If you are interested in becoming a more active member of the CACCE we want to hear from you!

One of our mandates was to create an online repository of resources for all our members. What you see now is only the beginning and we ask that you consider sending us links/resources you have found helpful when teaching students. We are also in the process of finalizing our secure folder which will house assignments/rubrics/answers. Send your submission to
