CDHA Parliament Hill Day

On February 21, 2019 CDHA’s board of directors headed to Parliament Hill to discuss the importance of access to oral health care for the seniors' and indigenous populations with MPs and Senators from across Canada and from all major parties. Ms. Jean Yip, Co-Chair of the Liberals Seniors Caucus, joined the group for breakfast on the Hill to help kick-start the day. The inspiring discussion set the tone for a very productive day of advocacy on Parliament Hill where the CDHA Board had the opportunity to meet with 22 elected officials, including the Honourable Ginette Petipas Taylor, Minister of Health, to ensure that critical oral health care issues are brought to the forefront of the government’s agenda.
