HEALTH CARE CO-OP FEDERATION OF CANADA: QUESTION
The HCCFC is the national federation of wellness, social service and health co-ops across Canada. We provide networking and learning opportunities within and beyond our sector, show-case the work of our member co-ops and are a voice for our sector. They are looking for input into health priorities:
“The World Health Organization identifies social connections, clean water, nutritious food, safe housing, security of access to all of these, and finally, access to health and medical services. What do you feel is the single most effective action governments (federal, provincial, municipal) across Canada could take to support the wellness of Canadians?
Suggestions so far include:
– enact a living wage for all
– provide a “wellness allowance” to cover preventative actions such as nutritious food, exercise club memberships, running shoes, bike helmets
– facilitate access to cannabis
– legislate that all sugar-heavy products can be displayed only on higher shelves in grocery stores, away from the sight-line of children
Do you agree with one of these, or can you add another action idea to enhance the wellness of Canadians?
