Canadian Health Coalition Lobby

The Canadian Health Coalition (CHC) organizes an annual lobby of Members of Parliament (MPs) to promote public health care and proposes solutions to improve our system. As supportive and active member of the CHC, the CFNU participates in the lobby, contributing information, materials and attending meetings with MPs. 

CHC Lobby, February 27, 2018

The most recent CHC Lobby Day had the following lobbying priorities:

  • Stopping the privatization of health care, with a focus on private clinics conducting unnecessary medical tests and unlawfully billing patients
  • Federal government enforcement of the Canada Health Act
  • National pharmacare program

More than 80 people from health coalitions across the country participated, including 14 who formed the CFNU delegation. Together, they lobbied more than 50 legislators.
