Government Relations

As one of the most trusted voices on health care policy and delivery, nurses have proven to be strong advocates for high-quality patient care and better, broader public health care across Canada.

The Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions (CFNU) regularly engages with Canada’s federal, provincial and territorial governments. This advocacy includes regular meetings with ministers, premiers, parliamentarians and officials to discuss priority issues, hosting annual events that advance the perspectives and priorities of nurses, nurses’ unions and patients, and appearances before and submissions to parliamentary committees. We present the latest evidence and research findings from world-renowned health and policy experts to key decision makers.

While the main focus of the CFNU’s advocacy will always be improving health care, nurses know it is important to lobby for societal priorities that will make living in Canada and around the world a better place. Nurses recognize that broader issues, such as socio-economic status, play a key role in determining the health of populations. They also know that the public trust vested in them as advocates must be used to work towards a more just and equitable society for all.
