It's time to fix the Northern Health Travel Grant!
In 2019, I introduced Bill 144, the Northern Health Travel Grant Advisory Committee Act. The bill remains in committee. Please sign your name to help us get this bill passed, so that Northern Ontario can get the healthcare it needs.
TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
WHEREAS the Northern Health Travel Grant is supposed to even the playing field so all Ontarians can get the medical care they need – but it is failing too many Northern families;
WHEREAS successive Conservative and Liberal governments have let Northerners down by failing to make health care accessible in the North;
WHEREAS not all costs are covered, and reimbursement amounts are small compared to the actual costs, Northern families are forced to pay out of pocket to access health care; which is a barrier for seniors and low income working families.
THEREFORE WE, the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to fix the Northern Health Travel Grant, we can ensure more people get the care they need, when they need it.
