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 find and ensure that PSWs that they employ are 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.

  1. What to Expect From HSCPOA

    Following consultation with relevant stakeholders across the province, including government, patient/family/caregivers, PSWs, employers, and educators, HSCPOA will  

    • establish the minimum requirements for registration, including education (knowledge, skills judgement) experience, and competency for PSWs and other supportive care providers. 
    • create regulations, by-laws, policies and practice standards as a foundation for oversight of the ethical and professional conduct of registered PSWs when providing services to the public, 
    • maintain a public register so clients can access information about registered PSWs and ensure they hire qualified workers. 
    • provide a standardised complaints system if clients have concerns about a registered PSW’s professional practice.
    • provides a dispute resolution mechanism to protect the public from potential misconduct from registrants
