CAHF Awards

One of CAHF's priorities is to ensure that long-term care providers are recognized for their excellence. Through our annual awards program we honor providers, dedicated staff and volunteers for their achievements and their dedication to long-term care.

Awards are presented at CAHF's Spring Legislative Conference, Summer Conference and Annual Convention.
