Canada needs a National Drug Plan

September 2, 2015


The following information is from the Campaign for National Drug Coverage website:

The idea of national drug coverage, or pharmacare, has been getting a lot of attention across Canada lately. More and more people are calling for a national pharmacare strategy, including doctors, nurses, economists, as well as people in contract and service jobs who don’t have drug coverage.

These calls reflect a growing problem that affects everyone in Canada: we are paying too much for prescription drugs.

In fact, our current patchwork system of private and public drug plans means that we are paying some of the highest drug prices in the world. Prescription medications cost on average 30% more in Canada than in other industrialized countries.

Why isn’t this a federal election issue? Please go to the following website and add your name to the growing number of Canadians demanding action on this important issue: Take Action
