Call / Meeting Info


Event Information

The United States and Canada have very different systems of health care. Americans are currently fighting to expand health care with a system of single-payer Medicare for All. Canadians pride themselves on their public healthcare system, but there are still many gaps to be addressed. 

Join labour leaders and progressive politicians for a discussion on how we can work together to build the public health care systems of the 21st century. We will explore the past, present and future of public health care on both sides of the border.
