Get informed: Educate yourself on the issues that matter

Canadians head to the polls on Oct. 19. Voting is a privilege, and yet election campaigns don’t always provide voters with the information they need to make their decision.

Why Health Matters is our platform containing recommendations that will put health front and centre leading up to the federal election.

Even though health is a provincial responsibility, the federal government has a vital role to play in keeping Canadians healthy.

The association's platform contains 17 recommendations that cover five areas: Medicare, access to care, social determinants of the health, the environment, and fiscal capacity.

The platform is just one of many ways nurses are speaking out during the election campaign.

A series of all-candidates meetings will take place in federal ridings throughout Ontario with nurses leading spirited debates among MP hopefuls.

We have released a questionnaire to all party leaders. The results will be posted here as they are returned to us.
