Trudeau said Monday he’s optimistic that Canada’s public health care system will continue to grow as the country moves forward with plans to expand the country’s health care infrastructure.
“I am absolutely confident in the future,” he said, pointing to a number of programs that have already been put into place.
The prime minister also said he’s confident that a Canadian-style single-payer system will be able to provide universal health care for Canadians by 2030, despite recent concerns that the plan could undermine the countrys health care delivery system.
The Liberals are expected to unveil their proposed reforms to the Canadian health system on Tuesday.
They will also be presenting a framework for a national strategy for improving the health care systems.
While Trudeau said that the health-care system in Canada is “very good,” he’s also been open to looking at other options, particularly in the U.S. and the U, where health care costs have risen dramatically.
“There’s a lot of other places where we could do it in Canada,” he told reporters Monday.
“It’s certainly not the best place in the world for us.”
He also pointed to the high cost of care in Canada, saying that it’s “not about a health care race.
It’s about a system that’s working and it’s working very well.””
We’re going to be working very hard to get better prices, better services, better outcomes for our patients,” he added.”
We know what we’re doing.
We know what it takes.”‘
There’s still a long way to go’A report released Monday by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, a think-tank, said that Canadian health costs are rising at an annual rate of almost 8 per cent.
The organization also noted that the number of people who die each year from preventable diseases is rising, and that Canada has one of the highest rates of drug overdose deaths in the developed world.
“The current situation is worse than in the past,” said David Coletto, the chief economist for the centre, which commissioned the report.
“We’re on track to reach the target of 10 per cent by 2030.”
The report also said that while Canada has an aging population, it still has more health-related jobs than any other country in the OECD.
It said that by 2030 there will be about 11 million more workers in health care, including about 1.6 million in the profession.
The report was released ahead of a federal budget meeting, which will likely focus on what the Liberals will do to help the economy, and what changes they want to make to the system to help ensure that Canadians are getting the care they need.
