Campaigns and Petitions
There are people in Canada who have never been able to afford dental care.
People like Danielle, a contractor, who told Jagmeet she has never been able to afford dental care or prescription medicine.
Parents like Adam, a single father, who messaged Jagmeet to say both his children need dental surgery but he’s worried about how he’ll pay those bills at $2,000 each.
Workers like Sally, who lost one of her jobs in the pandemic. She says she is struggling and has never been able to afford to go to the dentist. She texted Jagmeet to say what a blessing it is that her dental health may soon be covered.
But there’s a problem – Conservatives are already complaining about the cost of helping families while they focus on advocating for help for the ultra-rich.
They say Canadians don’t need dental care. Tell Conservatives they’re wrong by signing this petition today.
The affordability crisis is impacting every aspect of our lives. This historic expansion of health care to include dental care and pharmacare will make a massive difference in improving people's quality of life — people like Adam, Sally, and Danielle.
Conservatives don’t have any plans at all to help the 6.5 million Canadians who can’t afford a trip to the dentist, and we know they will do whatever they can to stop this historic expansion of public healthcare. They want to privatize healthcare instead.
If they get their way, Danielle, Sally, Adam, and millions more like them may never get the help — the help they say they need right now.
If you agree dental care for Canadians is desperately needed, make sure to add your name:

Something about food prices just doesn’t add up. Parliament needs to find out why.
