The United Nations Human Rights Committee (UNHRC) recently issued a landmark decision condemning Canada for denying access to essential health care on the basis of immigration status based on the case of Nell Toussaint. In light of this UN decision, over 1500 individuals and 80 organizations have signed onto an open letter addressed to the federal government, leading to widespread media coverage. You can read the letter at healthcareformigrants.com. The UN has given Canada 180 days to respond to the UN decision which ends in February. If you are interested in being involved in organizing an action in your city, please email us at [email protected]
