A universal, not-for-profit public health care system is the best way to provide health services to Canadians.

CUPE fights for quality public health services. We want to protect existing services, like hospitals, and strengthen and broaden other services like long-term care and home care and accessibility to prescription drugs.

CUPE represents the largest number of employees in the health care system – 190,000 – including auxiliary nurses, support staff and paramedics.
