Canada’s unions are celebrating today’s announcement by the Standing Committee on Health that recommends a single-payer, universal prescription drug plan for Canada.
The labour movement worked to win a public healthcare system long before Canadians even believed it was possible. We know that staying healthy means we can raise our families, work productively and contribute more to our communities. We're working to reduce wait times and improve access to health care. We're working to improve long-term care and mental health services.
