Policy & Political Action

Important decisions are being made about Canadian health care, and your voice must be heard

On October 18, federal, provincial and territorial health ministers will meet in Toronto to negotiate a new health accord. This meeting provides a golden opportunity to push for things that will help improve Canada’s health system such as:

a) increases in federal health payments to provinces and territories to support necessary health services; and
b) conditions on those payments to stop user fees and to deliver essential services that are currently not part of our system.

For example, pharmacare, home care and ensuring interprofessional primary care for everyone will make our national health system even better.

Here is how you can help:
