A STRONG VOICE
Time to put health back on the agenda
The federal election is a time to make our voices heard. It’s time to tell candidates what matters to us the most: health and health care.
We believe by working together, we can create the momentum to make health and health care a priority - for this election and beyond.
Join us to put health back on the federal agenda!

ACCESS TO CARE
Nearly five million Canadians don’t have access to a health care provider.
CLIMATE CHANGE AND HEALTH
The health impacts of climate change facing Canadians are real and will worsen.
Canada is the only country in the world with universal health care that does not also include prescription medications as part of its public health plan.
Our health care system is failing to meet the needs of our aging population.
Digital innovations have been widely adopted and improve many aspects of our lives. The public health care system is lagging behind, with a model that is not evolving.
YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH
Emergency department visits for mental health issues among children and youth are rising. Timely access to mental health care and addiction services is needed to save lives.
