Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The Canada Health Act ensures access to emergency medical care and hospital stay;
  • Many Canadians pay out of pocket for prescription medications;
  • Many Canadians pay out of pocket for psychologists, and registered therapists;
  • Many Canadians pay out of pocket for ambulance services.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to amend our Health Act to include as a right for all Canadians prescription medications, psychologists and registered therapists, and ambulance services regardless of ability to pay.
