Personal Support Worker, 2006
President and Co-founder, Ontario Personal Support Workers Association
Miranda Ferrier has become the voice of a previously unheard group of front-line health-care workers and almost single-handedly demanded regulation and respect for her field. President and co-founder of both the Ontario Personal Support Workers Association and the Canadian Support Workers Association, Ferrier is the go-to expert for national and local media covering stories about front-line health care and has been called upon by governments and Crown inquiries to provide insight and testimony to improve care to vulnerable populations. She has been described as a “firebrand” advocate for her field and she embraces that with pride.
