CSPCP at QELCCC Palliative Care Breakfast for MPs

The Quality End of Life Coalition of Canada (QELCCC) hosted a breakfast for MPs in Ottawa on October 25th. Several CSPCP members and Board members mixed and mingled with the crowd, which included MPs, senators, and representatives from many of the QELCCC member organizations. A highlight of the event was a moving personal story shared by Paul Adams. To view an earlier written version of the story, click here.

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.
