Wait times and access


  • Make sure every Canadian has access to a family doctor or primary health care team.
  • Make home care and palliative care more available across the country.


  • Invest $1.5 billion in a first term to purchase MRI machines and CT machines to replace and add machines across the country.
  • Provide $15 million to implement the Framework on Palliative Care in Canada.


Work with the provinces and territories to tackle wait times and improve access to primary care across the country.


Negotiate the Canada Health Accord to prioritize reduction in wait times, among other things.
