Palliative Care as an election issue

(September 2021) The CSPCP is a proud and active member of the Quality End of Life Care Coalition of Canada (QELCCC).

The QELCCC believes that equitable access to palliative care is a priority. We also believe that a palliative approach to care should be part of standards for Long-Term Care in Canada.

We are conducting a public campaign on Twitter and Facebook – please join in!

In addition, the QELCCC has written to party leaders asking them to commit to the three asks shown above, sent them a briefing note to deepen their knowledge, and participated in the federal pre-budget submission process.
