Ottawa: Canada’s universal, publicly funded health care systems are a source of pride in our country. The federal government is working closely with provincial and territorial partners to strengthen and adapt these systems to the challenges of delivering health care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Health, announced a bilateral agreement with Nunavut to expand virtual health care services for its residents. Under the agreement, the territory will receive over $3.1 million to invest based on agreed-upon pan-Canadian priorities for accelerating virtual health care services, which have been instrumental for delivering care during the pandemic and are helping to improve access to much needed services.
