MAKE HEALTHCARE A PRIORITY

TAKE ACTION BEFORE SEPTEMBER 20 #Elxn44

IT’S TIME FOR GOVERNEMENT TO MAKE HEALTHCARE A PRIORITY

Send your federal candidates a letter. Having local candidates hear directly from patients is very powerful.

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed our healthcare system beyond its breaking point, as the system provided care to the overwhelming number of COVID-19 patients, while endeavouring to maintain care for all other patients.

More than ever, we must work together to make our voices heard. Thousands of patients and lives depend on it. This is why several Canadian patient organizations have come together to demand a clear commitment to significant funding for health care and services and equal access to primary healthcare professionals and the best available medications.

Advocating for change has never been simpler and will only take you a few seconds.

Regardless of ability to pay, or where they live, Canadians should not be reliant on “the postal code lottery.” All Canadians deserve to have health care placed at the center of the commitments of our future government.

Contact your candidates now. Enter your name, email and postal code to send automatically a letter to your candidates.

Tip: Personalize this letter.

  • Consider writing about your story, or a member of your family about what is most challenging about the disease.
  • If you are a patient group representative, start you letter with "I am writing to you on behalf of (Patient Group name and description of its work)."
  • If you are writing as an individual, start your letter with "I am a resident of (City)."
