Canada needs a National Seniors Care Strategy

The Canadian Health Coalition is launching its campaign calling for a National Seniors Care Strategy.


Most Canadians will rely on seniors care at some point in their lives. Our public health care system is currently ill-equipped to address the health care needs of the aging population. We need a National Strategy to ensure that all seniors can access quality care, regardless of where they live in Canada. We must take action now to ensure consistent funding, standards of care and staffing levels across the country. All Canadians deserve to age with dignity and respect!

Starting the Conversation about Seniors Care

With a federal election coming up in 2019, now is the time to speak up on this issue!

One of the simplest ways of moving this issue forward is to start a discussion about seniors care. You can be a catalyst for change by sharing your story about seniors care with your family members, friends, coworkers, or elected representatives. Encourage those around you to do the same.

We asked a few of the CHC’s board members to talk to us about the need for a National Seniors Care Strategy. You can watch their short videos here. We hope they’ll inspire you to keep this conversation going.
