(March 2019) The CSPCP joined ten other organizations in a letter to thank Ontario Minister of Health and Long Term Care, Christine Elliott, for her support of Dan’s Law (Bill 73) in Ontario.
The original bill, Dan’s Law, was a joint effort of MPP Lisa Gretzky and Dr. Darren Cargill, a palliative care physician in Windsor. The goal is to remove the three-month waiting period for OHIP funded palliative care and home care for Canadian residents who move to or return to Ontario. If the Bill passes, it will help many patients and families, and it could set a precedent for other provinces that have waiting periods. The Bill has passed First Reading.
