Objectives of a National Pharmacare Program

14 May 2019
CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Pharmacare is a system of health insurance that provides people with access to necessary prescription drugs. Its design can be determined by a number of factors, including which population groups are targeted, which types of drugs are covered, and how it is financed.

Most Canadians have some form of prescription drug coverage, but the terms of coverage vary considerably, leaving many households facing cost barriers when they have prescriptions to fill.

What do you feel should be the objectives of a national pharmacare program for Canadians? Share your thoughts below:

Thank you for your interest in this consultation with the Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare. 

The online consultation is now closed, and written submissions are no longer being accepted. 

In March 2019, the Council provided an interim report to the Minister of Health and the Minister of Finance on the progress of their work.

The Council released its final report in June 2019.
