For years Big Pharma has been placing their profits over your right to essential medicines. While the NDP and the Liberals have committed to enacting pharmacare legislation by 2023, we need to mobilize to ensure that it’s a people’s pharmacare plan – and not a Big Pharma pharmacare plan.

Join us on Tuesday, September 13th for a Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE)-led webinar on how large pharmaceutical and insurance corporations are pushing for the continuation of a patchwork system that guarantees their profits rather equitable and accessible to medications for all. Featuring Don Davies (NDP Health Critic), Danyaal Raza (Canadian Doctors for Medicare), Colleen Fuller (health policy researcher), Elizabeth Kwan (Canadian Labour Congress), and Frédéric Brisson (Canadian Union of Public Employees).

What: Mobilizing for Universal Pharmacare: Putting Health Justice Before Pharma Profits

When: Tuesday, September 13th at 7 pm EST 
Where: Zoom

One thing is for certain: Big Pharma’s defenders are already gearing up for the fight ahead. Read this recent article published in The Breach about how the industry will try any argument, no matter how false or self-defeating, to frighten us into thinking that putting limits on their price-gouging will bring the sky down on our heads.


Hope to see you there!
