Rebalancing the Health Care Funding Partnership

 

For years now, Canada’s Premiers have been calling on the federal government to rebalance the health care funding partnership. COVID-19 has only increased the urgent need for a federal response.

To ensure Canadians continue to receive the health care they need, both now and for future generations, Canada’s Premiers are urging the federal government to become a full funding partner.

Premiers are calling for an immediate and unconditional injection to the Canada Health Transfer to bring the federal share to 35%.

Now is the time to rebalance the health care funding arrangement with the federal government and re-establish a full funding partnership, that respects constitutional roles and responsibilities.
