Letter to Prime Minister Requesting Urgent Support for Health Charities Coalition of Canada

Posted: 11-12-2020


The Health Charities Coalition of Canada sent a letter to The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, outlining our urgent request for assistance to help our Canadian health charities. COVID-19 has had a detrimental impact on our organization's abilities to support patients through their programming and services, as well as through facilitating important health research. Without immediate support, these setbacks will have lasting impacts on health research in Canada, affecting hundreds of researchers, undermining millions of dollars in investments already made, and contributing to poorer health outcomes for Canadians.

Our funding proposal includes $103 million in funding to support research initiatives that are at risk and $28 million to support patient support initiatives as a result of the pandemic. This funding will allow us to main­tain our vital services, while also keeping up with the increasing demand due to COVID-19.  The letter can be downloaded here
