Healthcare: it’s time for an in-depth reform

Despite massive reinvestment in health care, the system remains incapable of meeting demand. Claude Castonguay, one of the architects of the system, says the March 26 election results open the way to real change; the time for in-depth reform is here. On May 16, Mr. Castonguay issued a call for change to the people and government of Quebec, with the focus on a more open health care system that offers greater choice to patients.

Towards significant changes in English or in French.
A longer version of this presentation by Mr. Castonguay is available on CIRANO’s Website.
