Ensuring healthcare for all Canadians

The Canadian Council of Churches has been a strong advocate for health care for all people in Canada through the CCC’s Ecumenical Health Care Network.

During the Romanow Commission on the Future of Health Care in Canada (2001-2002), the Ecumenical Health Care Network prepared policy briefs, fact sheets, theological reflections, and other resources to support people of faith in their engagement with the health care questions of the day. Those resources are still relevant today.

With the recent expiry of the Canada Health Accord, the General Secretary of the CCC asks the current Minister of Health if the federal government is committed to a publicly-funded, universally accessible health care system based upon need rather than ability to pay.

Check out the letter for more about what the General Secretary is asking.

On this occasion, we’ve repurposed three signature resources from a decade ago to re-engage in public dialogue today:

1) A Health Care Covenant for All People in Canada

2) Charter and Covenant: The Churches and the Struggle for Public Health Care in Canada (a historical overview written by Joe Gunn)

3) Why Christians Should Stay Involved in Canada’s Health Care Debate (a theological reflection written by former General Secretary Janet Somerville).
