Canada needs a national seniors strategy

Canadians are living longer, healthier lives than ever before. We need a health care system that can keep up. The CMA, and our 50,000 Demand a Plan public supporters, continue to press the federal government to develop a national seniors strategy.

Seniors plan recommendations

CMA’s 2018 pre-budget brief provides key recommendations to help improve the productivity and effectiveness of the health care system for Canadians across the country. Our five recommendations will not only lead to enhanced efficiencies in health care delivery but will also better support Canadian families and equip caregivers to care for their loved ones while contributing to other sectors of the economy.

Demand a seniors plan for Canada

To help spread the word on the need for action, Demand a Plan supporters have written over 100,000 letters and emails to Parliamentarians demanding better health care for seniors in Canada. They’ve also shared countless messages of support on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Here are five ways to get involved in our call for better care for our seniors.
