The Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare (the Council) led a national consultation on how to implement affordable national pharmacare for Canadians and their families, employers and governments.

Participants were invited to share their thoughts and ideas on what a national drug plan could look like after reading  the Discussion Paper which outlined some of the key issues.

Key questions for discussion

Pharmacare is a system of health insurance that provides people with access to necessary prescription drugs. Its design can be determined by a number of factors, including which population groups are targeted, which types of drugs are covered, and how it is financed.

Most Canadians have some form of prescription drug coverage, but the terms of coverage vary considerably, leaving many households facing cost barriers when they have prescriptions to fill.

What do you feel should be the objectives of a national pharmacare program for Canadians?
