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.

The NDP is going to keep fighting for universal pharmacare but, we need your help to keep up the pressure.
Canada is falling behind, being the only high-income country that has a universal healthcare system, but does not include universal coverage of prescription drugs. The lack of coverage results in 1 in 5 Canadians being unable to afford the medication their doctors prescribe. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us all the gaps in our healthcare system. Millions of Canadians have lost their jobs and are struggling to make ends meet. In a recent survey conducted by the Angus Reid Institute, nearly 9 in 10 Canadians support a national pharmacare plan like Bill C-213. It is clear, Canada’s healthcare system is falling behind.
We need universal pharmacare to ensure that all Canadians can access the medication they need.
Pharmacare for all means that all 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.
Thank you for your support.
