Winnipeg Area Council Meeting Notice for a Discussion on National Pharmacare
June 7th - June 7th
7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Facilitator: Tracy Thor
Please join the Winnipeg and Area Council (WAC) in a discussion on the implementation of National Pharmacare. The WAC is supporting the Canada Labour Congress (CLC) campaign and are looking to plan specific virtual actions.
“In the 2018 federal budget, the government announced the creation of an Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare, which was headed up by former Ontario health minister Dr. Eric Hoskins. The Advisory Council’s report was published in June 2019 and made it clear that Canada needed a universal, single payer, pharmacare program. Now Canadians just need the government to implement the recommendation of the Advisory Council.” (canadianlabour.ca website)
