Public Pharmacare Now

Sign the petition calling for universal, public pharmacare

Inflation is eating away at our pocketbooks, forcing millions of us to choose between paying the rent, buying groceries, or filling our prescriptions. And sky-high drug prices are taking billions from our hospitals, at a time when we need to massively re-invest to save public health care. A publicly-funded, universal drug coverage program – also known as pharmacare – could change this.

Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government has said it will introduce a Canada Pharmacare Act by March 1, 2024, as part of its supply-and-confidence deal with the NDP. Right now, Big Pharma and its insurance industry allies are working to torpedo the whole project.

Sign this petition to tell PM Justin Trudeau, Health Minister Mark Holland, and Associate Health Minister Darren Fisher to pass legislation immediately to create legislation for a public, single-payer, universal pharmacare program, as outlined by the Advisory Council on Implementing National Pharmacare in its 2019 report. Health care is a human right – our age, income, pre-existing conditions, province of residence or immigration status should not determine our ability to access the medicines we need.
