Healthcare Reform

Canada’s rising healthcare costs are creating increasing pressure on families, practitioners, enterprises, and governments at every level.

The C.D. Howe Institute has launched a new healthcare reform initiative to increase the capacity of governments and stakeholders to make evidence-based decisions on key health issues.

The Institute’s healthcare reform initiative consists of:

  • The engagement of a health policy scholar, professor Åke Blomqvist, who will work with the Institute’s in-house researchers to guide health policy research and dissemination;
  • A major conference on Health Technology Assessment to inform funding decisions of  provincial governments across Canada;
  • An expanded series of healthcare reform policy roundtables and conferences across Canada. The program will enlist top practitioners, policymakers and thought-leaders in a series of discussions in such key issues as pharmaceutical policy; supporting innovation and R&D; the role for private sector involvement; re-evaluating current financing and regulation; and other critical topics.
