ACER_CART Voting Issues for Seniors

Apr 25, 2021ACER_CART0 comments

Each year, ACER-CART identifies key issues of importance to retired educators and Canadian seniors. We are a national, non-partisan Association that speaks to government and all political parties in support of our membership.
Seniors are the fastest growing segment of our society and their specific needs have yet to be adequately addressed. The COVID-19 pandemic has put a spotlight on some of the shortfalls.
We are calling on all levels of government to work together to implement a National
Seniors Strategy that would:
• value aging and recognize the productive participation of seniors in society.
• prioritize care in seniors’ own homes or close to their own homes
• put Long-Term Care homes under the umbrella of the Canada Health Act to provide national standards and funding
• implement a national, single-payer universal Pharmacare plan that includes necessary vaccines for seniors.
• ensure retirement income for all Canadians.
