Canadians need a new Health Accord.
Unifor is a strong defender of our public health care system - one that provides high-quality care for every Canadian, regardless of their income level or where they live. For years, the federal government under Stephen Harper distanced itself from meaningful conversations with the provinces and territories around health care funding and care standards.
In 2014, Harper allowed the Health Accord to expire. His plans for the future of our health care system will mean over $36 billion in cuts beginning in 2017.
This is why we must act now.
