Community Care CKL works to simplify the uncertainty of transportation for both caregivers and those in their care by providing local and out-of-region ride services, engaging both volunteer and staff drivers.

Through the support of the Petro‑Canada CareMakers Foundation, Community Care CKL purchased a new van and retrofitted it to allow for the provision of specialized rides to lifesaving dialysis appointments and respite programs. In addition, a subsidy pool was provided in supporting clients and by extension their caregivers.
