Town Hall on Health Care for Seniors

Starts: November 7th, 2016 - 2:00pm
Where: Qualicum Beach Community Hall

Caring for our seniors is a priority for most of our families. As the number of Canadian seniors increases, we urgently need a plan in place to meet their needs and ensure that everyone can age with dignity. It's important to recognize the impact of the aging population in the new Health Accord that is being negotiated between the federal government and the provinces and territories.

High-quality, accessible public health care is critical for seniors managing the demands of aging and often coping with multiple and chronic health challenges. The NDP is asking the government to consider recommendations made by the Canadian Medical Association to include a health care strategy for seniors and funding for such a strategy in the new Health Accord.
