Open to all Unifor members.
Canada is the only developed country with a universal health care system that has no universal prescription drug coverage.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 8 million Canadians did not have prescription drug coverage and an estimated 3 million Canadians did not take medicines prescribed by their doctors because they couldn’t afford them. In a matter of weeks, millions of Canadians have been laid off with few of them having any health care benefits to carry them through this crisis.
The time to act is now – together we need to demand universal pharmacare for everyone, regardless of income, age, or where the person works or lives.
Join us for an online workshop to learn about Unifor's vision for pharmacare in Canada, and learn about what you can do to support the campaign. This session will have a particular focus on Canadians who have or will lose drug coverage as a result of the pandemic effects.
