2019 Federal Election

​Health Care Matters to Canadians

Canada’s health-care system was a key priority in the 2019 federal election.  The election was an opportunity for nurses to use their voice to influence change and elect a government that would be committed to maintaining federal funding to meet the demands of the health-care system and improving patient care for all Canadians.  BCNU President Christine Sorensen highlighted the key issues in a video message to members.
