2014 Health Care Accord

[ http://www.canadians.org/2014accord ]

Canada is facing an important next step in our medicare history. In 2014, the current health care accord – the deal that sets funding and health care service delivery agreements between the federal and provincial and territorial governments – expires and must be renegotiated. The federal government is ignoring the calls of the provinces and territories to work on a deal, and shockingly announced $36 billion worth of health care cuts which will come into effect after the next federal election in 2015.

The Council of Canadians has always fought for strengthened public health care. We believe that everyone – provincial and territorial governments, First Nations and the federal government – should come together to ensure the 2014 Health Care Accord delivers better, more efficient, quality public health care that includes a national pharmacare program and better home care and long term care for our aging population. All Canadians should have access to the same services and quality of care provided by a national, public health care system.

Council of Canadians’ members and chapter activists are active in communities across Canada in support of public health care. Through rallies, public events and working with health coalitions and other groups, we are on the front lines of the fight to ensure Canadians have the best public health care system possible.

The Council of Canadians campaigns to strengthen public health care and stop privatization. We believe that everyone – provincial and territorial governments, First Nations and the federal government – should come together to ensure the 2014 Health Care Accord delivers better, more efficient, quality public health care that includes a national pharmacare program and better home care and long-term care for our aging population. All Canadians should have access to the same services and quality of care provided by a national, public system.
