Sharing Responses to the National Pharmacare Public Consultation
Announced in the 2018 federal budget and chaired by former Ontario Health Minister Eric Hoskins, the Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare is currently engaging in a national dialogue on how the federal government could implement affordable national pharmacare for Canadians. As part of this dialogue, the Council is seeking written responses to its discussion paper Towards Implementation of National Pharmacare, including questions around who should be covered, what drugs should be covered and who should pay for the coverage. Written consultation comments are due by September 28, 2018.
Input received from this and the Council’s other ongoing consultation activities will inform the Council’s report to the federal ministers of health and finance in Spring 2019.
PDCI has volunteered to accumulate the consultation submissions of those individuals and organizations who wish to have their message shared broadly, and PDCI will share them in their entirety on a centrally located webpage available here.
If you or your organization have prepared written comments to the consultation and are interested to share them with the public, please contact PDCI’s Managing Director, Kaitlyn Proulx at Kaitlyn.Proulx@pdci.ca or (613) 742-8225 ext. 33. Please attach PDF version(s) of your English and/or French submissions and indicate your permission for PDCI to share on its webpage.
