2020 will go down as one of the most dynamic and challenging years for Canadians, the government and all of those invested in supporting the health care system. The Liberal minority government’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis, provincial governments’ varied approaches to tackling the pandemic, and vaccine procurement have taken a hit on every governments’ planned agenda.
From climate change to Pharmacare, will 2021 move the yard stick forward on the federal government’s priorities, or will COVID-19 vaccine deployment and additional waves consume Canada for another year?
Join Santis Health’s political and health policy experts as we dive into what to expect for 2021.
