According to the Canadian Labour Congress Pharmacare for All campaign, 3.5 million Canadians can’t afford to fill their prescriptions. The campaign is working to win a universal prescription drug plan that covers everyone in Canada, regardless of their income, age or where they work or live. First Call has long advocated for our federal and provincial governments to introduce universal coverage for all Canadians for prescription drugs, dental care and eye care as essential aspects of health care.
