A Canada of Opportunity… where we connect Canadians, rather than divide them… and work together to create a sustainable future for our children.
By 2020, almost 1 in 5 Canadians will be seniors. At the end of the decade, it is estimated that Canada’s provinces will spend 50 to 70 percent of their revenues on healthcare. Health care must be a national priority, and must include national pharma and continuing care programs, given our aging demographic.
We must make prenatal nutrition and a healthy start a priority for Canadian children.
Early childhood learning and affordable childcare must be seen as economic drivers and not as afterthoughts in policy priorities.
Rural Canada matters. Canada’s farmers and agri-food sector provides 1 out of every 8 jobs and generates $42 billion in economic activity. A sustainable, dependable domestic food source is a cornerstone of Canada’s economy and is a national security imperative.
