The CMA’s 16th Annual National Report Card on Health Care  focused on solutions to address the health care needs of Canada’s aging population that could be included in the soon-to-be negotiated Health Accord between the federal, provincial and territorial governments.

As the discussions for the new Health Accord draw closer, the survey found that few Canadians (15%) are generally aware of the negotiations between their provincial, territorial and federal governments.

“Awareness of the Health Accord among the public is low but the CMA contends that a new Health Accord between the federal, provincial and territorial governments emphasizing seniors is essential to the future success and sustainability of our health care system,” said Dr. Cindy Forbes, the CMA President.
