Fixing Our Health Care System

Expanding OHIP

It’s getting harder and harder for Ontarians to get the health care they need. Too many Ontarians wait hours at the ER, wait weeks for a doctor’s appointment, or spend weeks or months waiting in pain and anxiety for a surgery. 

The pandemic exposed just how broken our health care system is, with nurses, doctors and other health professionals chronically short-staffed and run off their feet, unable to give patients the time and attention they need. 

Together, we can fix this. The Ontario NDP has a practical, doable plan to rebuild and strengthen health care in Ontario. 

Together, Kristyn and the NDP will:

  • Deliver universal, publicly funded mental health care and expand OHIP to cover mental health counselling and therapy services
  • Address the overdose crisis in this province
  • Clear the COVID-19 surgical backlog
  • Work with the federal government to strengthen and accelerate the expansion of dental care
  • Take immediate action to begin hiring 10,000 PSWs and raising wages
  • Begin to hiring 300 doctors in Northern Ontario including 100 specialists and 40 mental health practitioners 
  • Work immediately on Universal Pharmacare for Ontarians
  • Protect and support perinatal mental health
