Asked whether the Trudeau government would consider changes to the Canada Health Act to address systemic racism in the health-care system, Health Minister Patty Hajdu said Friday the government was open to “looking at all tools,” especially those identified by Indigenous communities.
Hajdu made the comments during a joint media availability with Indigenous Services Minister Marc Miller and Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett. The ministers spoke after a meeting with Indigenous community leaders about racism in the health-care system.
Miller added the federal government needs provinces to introduce systemic change to Canada’s health-care system – adding that Ottawa doesn’t have the power to reform licensing bodies on its own.
