Health Care : public solutions
What is the Health Accord?
The Health Accord is a legal agreement between the federal and provincial/territorial governments on health care funding. Running from 2004 to 2014, this 10-year plan recommitted leaders to the Canada Health Act, set wait time and other goals, and increased health care funding by 6 per cent each year.
