In Canada, if you cut your finger, you go to a doctor and get treated with stitches. When it’s done, you walk out and never see a bill.
But if you walk into a doctor’s office and get diagnosed with an ailment that requires prescription medication, you’re at the mercy of your ability to pay.
It doesn't have to be this way.
Pharmacare for all means Canadians will only need their health card – not their credit card – to get the prescriptions they need.
Our pharmacare for all plan will save families more than $500 a year, and save $4.2 billion in prescription costs across Canada.
In the coming weeks, Bill C-213 - The NDP's Canada Pharmacare Act will be coming up for a vote in Parliament. This historic bill would put in place the framework for a national Pharmacare program.
