On June 2, join the discussion on innovative practices and policies for an aging population
The federal government’s commitment to a new Health Accord is considered to be essential to the sustainability of Canada’s health care system. As provinces and territories struggle to meet the health care needs of their ageing population, the Forum addresses opportunities to be able to deliver a health system for all Canadians.
Seniors today account for 14 percent of Canada’s population. It is expected to increase to more than a quarter of the population by 2036. The new Liberal government has recognized that something needs to be done. In this year’s budget speech, Finance Minister Hon. Bill Morneau announced his intent invest in innovative practices to protect the integrity of the health care system and find ways to work with partners to identify solutions.
Hill Times Events is eager to explore this important public affairs issue and ways in which practices and government policy can be adapted to result in positive change for Seniors in Canada. Join us on June 2 as we hear from association executives, industry, academia and government to further the dialogue and bring forward suggested solutions.
