Through July 13, 2018, Health Canada is holding a public engagement asking that Canadians share their ideas, innovations and lived-experience related to palliative care.
Through this consultation, Health Canada intends to engage Canadians on their long-term vision of palliative care in Canada. Using discussion forums and shared stories, Health Canada hopes to identify gaps as well as solutions and bright ideas we can then share across the country.
Your input will help the government develop a framework on palliative care for Canadians. You can make submissions here.
