Federal Health Commitments: What to Expect in 2023
The federal government has given an unprecedented amount of focus to health, with several commitments made to health human resources, pharmacare, dental care and health data.

As we look ahead to 2023, how will existing federal commitments be reflected in the 2023 Federal Budget? As many commitments require close collaboration with the provinces and territories to develop and implement, what will this mean for the dynamics between federal, provincial and territorial governments?

Join us on Tuesday, December 6, for an opportunity to hear from Santis' political and health policy experts as we do a deep dive into the current state — and potential future — of the federal government’s health policy commitments.
