C-277 moves ahead for further study

(Feb 1, 2017) Private Member’s Bill C-277, Framework on Palliative Care in Canada Act, received unanimous support last evening in the House of Commons to refer to Committee for further study. The CSPCP strongly supports this Bill and we look forward to providing input during the consultation process.

Thank you to all MPs who spoke in favour of the bill, to those who participated in the vote, and to the bill’s sponsor, MP Marilyn Gladu for recognizing the need to improve palliative care in Canada.
