Health care in the north is in crisis, and northerners are demanding that territorial and federal governments work together to fix the crisis.
Tell governments to work together to fix the northern health care crisis
We are advocates for northern health care who represent health care workers and their communities. This campaign is being sponsored by the Northern Territories Federation of Labour and the Yukon Federation of Labour.
Invest in fully-funded, permanent public sector solutions that build a strong northern health care system.
Health care professionals are sounding the alarm, and we need to listen to them. The short-staffed health care system is leaving northerners without care.
Instead of spending millions on temporary contract workers from the south, we want our governments to invest in permanent, public solutions, like training northerners to provide health care. On hiring, northern governments aren’t moving fast enough to fill the gaps and need more modern hiring practices.
Moving forward Canada’s reconciliation with Indigenous people means investing in northern health care. If we mobilize enough people, we can force elected officials to act.
