The 4 Pillars of Advocacy currently are:
1. Health - Pharma Care
National Association is supporting a universal Pharmacare. Check out this link
2. Pensions - Abandon Bill C-27 and Fix Phoenix Pay System because members retiring over the last 3 years are experiencing significant issues with their pension.
3. Seniors - Implement National Senior Strategy at all levels of government based on right care in the right place at the right time. Refer to this link
Note NAFR were lobbying for a Federal Senior’s Minister and a win for us the country now has a Federal Senior’s Minister. Check out this link
4. Veterans - Services to simplify the system to support a veteran friendly system and expand eligibility of family caregiver relief benefit and critical injury benefits.
