The federal and Ontario governments recently signed a $3.1-billion, 10-year agreement for major enhancements to the health care system in the province.
“Canadians value our universal public health care system, but recently this system hasn’t been living up to its promise. That’s why we’re signing agreements with provinces and territories to help ensure Canadians can access reliable, timely, and safe health care,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. “Today’s agreement with Ontario will increase access to family doctors, reduce backlogs, increase the workforce, and make the health care system work better. Let’s give Canadians the quality health care they expect and deserve.”
