COVID-19 highlights an urgent need to expand access to healthcare for all

The Canadian health care system has left some of the most marginalized segments of our communities behind as many groups regularly find themselves uninsured, including newly-landed permanent residents, migrant workers, international students, undocumented people and returning Canadians.
 
But health care's a human right and this should not be happening in Canada under any circumstances, especially not in the midst of a global pandemic. Denying access to healthcare is a threat to public health.
 
We need to ensure universal access to health care that does not discriminate based on our immigration status or ability to pay. Ensuring access to health care for everyone improves the health and safety of our communities as a whole!
