With the federal election date looming, affordable, easy and timely access to healthcare services is an important issue that should be top of mind for all Canadians. 

This period of time is an opportunity to engage with local representatives to support a modernized Medicare framework and promote a cost-effective solution that can be developed and deployed quickly.

We encourage you to write to your local MPs from each party to raise these concerns. Not sure who your local MP is? Find out here.
