This includes regular lobby meetings with ministers, parliamentarians and officials, hosting policy events for provincial and federal decision-makers, and providing written or verbal testimony before parliamentary committees.
We present the latest evidence and research findings from world-renowned academics, policy experts and thought leaders, making the CFNU one of the most trusted voices on health care policy and delivery. The CFNU has proven to be a strong advocate for improving our public universal health care system, investing in strong public services and building a more equitable, prosperous and sustainable future for everyone.
