In its mandate to assess the performance of the health and social services system, the Commissioner decided to undertake work on Québec’s basket of insured health and social services, that is, publicly funded care and services.

By carrying out this work, the Commissioner would first like to inform public debate by highlighting citizens’ values and concerns regarding the basket of services in an initial report on the issue. The report will also guide policymakers in their decision making by enabling them to take citizens’ values and concerns into account.

Call for personal accounts

A call for accounts is underway and will end on March 20, 2016. The Commissioner encourages anyone who would like share their experience to submit a personal account through an online questionnaire.

The accounts will be made public. However, confidentiality will be maintained in order to protect respondents’ anonymity, in compliance with the provisions of the Act respecting Access to Documents Held by Public Bodies and the Protection of Personal Information (CQLR, c.A-2.1).
