Information for Employers of Personal Support Workers (PSWs)

Welcome

The Health and Supportive Care Providers Oversight Authority recognizes the valuable role that employers can play in protecting the public. Employers of Personal Support Workers working in different health care settings (i.e., Public hospitals, Long-Term-Care (LTC) Homes, Retirement Homes, and home care settings) are encouraged to use HSCPOA’s online public register of PSWs to determine whether a PSW is registered with HSCPOA.

Employers are encouraged to pass on information to their existing employees and to new hires, about the benefits of applying to register with HSCPOA.  You can share the benefits to PSWs with those that you employ now.

Why Encourage PSWs to Apply

Being registered with HSCPOA benefits PSWs, their employers, and protects the public.

For Employers, care recipients, and the public:
