Our Vision

A high-quality, equitable, sustainable health system built on the best available evidence is the highest expression of Canadians caring for one another.

  • To assist in the education of doctors, policy makers, other health practitioners and the general public on the value, efficiency, quality and equity of publicly-funded health care and the reality of alternative systems
  • To effectively collaborate with other organizations that share similar objectives
