Did you know that Get Well Canada is riding the coattails of two global policy movements when it comes to securing the long-term health of Canadians? One is well-being budgeting. The second is health-in-all-policies.

"What we need now is for provincial and federal governments across Canada to recognize that these health policy movements all identify the same ingredients for a solution—to grow social spending more urgently than medical spending—and to be bold about how we must design government budgets to help Canadians, and our health system, get well."
