Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The Canada Health Act recognizes home care as an “extended health service” not an “insured health service” to which the principles of the Act apply;
  • Insured health services are fully funded by government and delivered based on the patient’s need, not their ability to pay;
  • Through its legislative role, the federal government can facilitate national approaches and standards that must be satisfied by provincial and territorial health care insurance plans.
We, the undersigned, Canadian citizens, call upon the Government of Canada to amend the Canada Health Act to include home care as an insured health service.
