About Us

As Canadians, we take pride in our healthcare system. Is it perfect? Far from it.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a number of areas for improvement that must be addressed. But Canada’s prescription drug system has worked well during this challenging time.  This begs the question, why does the federal government continue to think this is the right time for a national, universal single-payer pharmacare program in Canada?

The federal Liberals campaigned on the idea of universal single-payer pharmacare when they were first elected in 2015. In their first term in government, they commissioned the Hoskins Report which recommended steps to establish such a system at a cost of $15 billion per year. As recently as January of this year, the federal government reiterated their commitment to a national, universal pharmacare program in the updated mandate letter to the Minister of Health. Advocates for universal single-payer pharmacare argue that such a system would ensure Canadians have access to all the drugs they need. They view this as a simple solution that will solve a very complex issue. While this sounds appealing, this is simply not the truth.

Together for Better Health is committed to informing Canadians about the severe risks of a universal single-payer pharmacare program. For example, did you know that:

Advocates are not wrong when they claim there is a problem with the status-quo. Some Canadians do not have private or public insurance coverage for the drugs they need. So, let’s work towards a comprehensive solution that ensures those individuals can fill their prescriptions, Canadians with employer-provided group health benefits keep their plans and, the federal government directs tax dollars towards initiatives that are beneficial to Canadians who need it. Join us in telling your Member of Parliament that a universal single-payer pharmacare program is not worth the risk.
