Government of Canada Announces Changes to Lower Drug Prices and Lay the Foundation for National Pharmacare

No Canadian should have to choose between paying for prescriptions and putting food on the table. Our government is taking steps to lower the price of prescription drugs by working towards a national pharmacare program.

Millions of Canadians rely on prescription drugs to stay healthy, manage chronic conditions and cure disease, but they’re paying too much for the drugs they need. Our government will change that.

Today, Minister @GinettePT announced major reforms to the Patented Medicines Regulations that will:
* Make prescription drugs more affordable & accessible
* Save Canadians $13 billion in the next 10 years
* Lay the foundation for National Pharmacare
