The NDP is going to keep fighting for universal pharmacare but, we need your help to keep up the pressure.
Canada is falling behind, being the only high-income country that has a universal healthcare system, but does not include universal coverage of prescription drugs. The lack of coverage results in 1 in 5 Canadians being unable to afford the medication their doctors prescribe. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us all the gaps in our healthcare system. Millions of Canadians have lost their jobs and are struggling to make ends meet. In a recent survey conducted by the Angus Reid Institute, nearly 9 in 10 Canadians support a national pharmacare plan like Bill C-213. It is clear, Canada’s healthcare system is falling behind. We need universal pharmacare to ensure that all Canadians can access the medication they need.
