Looking Back, Looking Forward: Public Health Within a Federal-Provincial/Territorial Health Transfer Agreement

November 3, 2011

Presentation to the Standing Senate Committee on Social Affairs, Science and Technology

The anticipated renewal of the federal-provincial/territorial agreement on health/health care presents an opportune time to reconsider and reevaluate the factors that have, over the years, fostered success in the Canadian health system and those factors that can improve the system in the future. The relatively small section of the current health fund transfer agreement dedicated to public health serves as a reminder that there is still much room for improvement.
