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. Nell is one of an estimated half million people in Ontario alone who are denied access to health coverage and care on the basis of their immigration status, putting their health at risk.

In light of this UN decision, over 1500 individuals and 80 organizations have signed onto an open letter addressed to Prime Minister Trudeau, Health Minister Ginette Taylor, and Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, calling for federal government action on this issue. However, so far no action has been taken

*****************************************************************

JOIN THE RALLY AT UTSC ON FEB 12 FROM 12 to 1 PM
in which we demand the federal government to:

(1) Comply with the UNHRC’s order to review existing laws and policies regarding health care coverage for irregular migrants.

(2) Ensure appropriate resource allocation, so that all people in Canada are provided universal and equitable access to health care services, regardless of immigration status.

(3) Provide Nell Toussaint with adequate compensation for the significant harm she has suffered as a result of not receiving essential health care services.
