Without a universal prescription drug plan, coverage in Canada vastly differs depending on where you live. Ontario’s proposed partial pharmacare program is a step in the right direction, but still leaves many without coverage. Ontario’s current publicly-funded programs require deductibles or co-payments, which have proven to reduce access.

This patchwork coverage leaves many Ontarians without access to the medication they need, either because they don’t have a prescription drug plan or have plans that don’t cover the cost.

Everyone should have equal access to the prescription drugs they need regardless of where they live. It’s time for a universal prescription drug plan.
