Vote Health First

In light of the upcoming federal election, Save Your Skin Foundation commissioned research by Nanos Research to better understand Canadians’ views around federal health priorities.  The results provide a snapshot of priorities for people in Canada and support the need for a comprehensive health care strategy in Canada.

To see the Nanos survey results, please click HERE   On June 17, 2019, we hosted a panel discussion on the results of the survey and the health priorities that affect all Canadians: ‘The Case of the Missing Health Platform’.
