We are the strong and credible voice leading the nursing profession to influence and promote healthy public policy. The absence of a national pharmacare program is a major gap in Canada's universal health-care system -- a gap whose consequences nurses deal with daily in their practice.

    The need to prevent and manage dementia in Canada is critical. In 2011, 747,000 Canadians lived with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias (ADRD). This amounted to 14.9 per cent of Canadians 65 and older (Alzheimer Society, 2012). By 2031, the number of Canadians living with dementia will increase to 1.4 million (Alzheimer Society, 2012).

For example, roughly 1 in 1000 people under the age of 65 develop dementia (Alzheimer Society Canada, 2015).
