Take Action for Pharmacare

Council of Canadians joins with national organizations in call for pharmacare

The Council of Canadians joined with the Canadian Health Coalition and other national and regional organizations to send a joint letter to the Prime Minister, the Minister of Health and the Minister of Finance to call for immediate federal government action to implement universal, public pharmacare.

The need for national pharmacare has never been more urgent. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, one in five Canadians had either no drug coverage at all or had inadequate coverage. That number has increased significantly during the pandemic, with millions of people losing their jobs and their employer-sponsored drug plans.
