To fix our medical care system, Canada must invest where health begins.
Get Well Canada is an alliance of researchers, community leaders and medical professionals who want to fulfill the promise of Canada’s commitment to health care. Canadians "Get Well" when we invest in safe and affordable homes, living wages, quality child care and schools, and a healthy environment even more urgently than medical care.
We call on Canadian governments to embrace the wisdom that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
It’s the winning strategy to reduce pressure on our medical care system and tackle our affordability crisis, making Canadians happier, healthier, wealthier and more resilient for generations to come.
