Healthcare for Migrants National Day of Action

February 12, 2019 - 12:00 PM

The United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) recently issued a landmark decision condemning Canada for denying access to essential health care on the basis of immigration status based on the case of Nell Toussaint. In light of this UN decision, over 1500 individuals and 80 organizations have signed onto an open letter addressed to the federal government. The UN has given Canada 180 days to respond to the UN decision which ends in February.

Please join rallies across Canada on February 12th at 12pm as the health community calls on the federal government to stop the denial of healthcare on the basis of immigration status!
