My primary responsibility as your Member of Parliament is to help my neighbours and our community here in Milton. We know that Canadians pay too much for their medication, and that we are the only country in the world with universal health care, but no universal drug coverage. I’ve always been an advocate for a National Pharmacare program, so I’m proud that our government has launched the first step toward comprehensive coverage – with broad support for contraception and diabetes medications.

This means that 9 million Canadians will have access to contraception and the reproductive autonomy they deserve, and 3.7 million Canadians living with diabetes will receive the medication and resources they need.

These programs follow the Canadian Dental Care plan, which provides affordable dental care for those without access to coverage. This program is expanding, so please visit to learn more.

Canadians should have access to the best healthcare in the world, and these programs will ensure that people won’t need to decide between their health and their bills. It’s a matter of fairness, dignity and building a healthcare system that works for all Canadians.
