When the government makes significant changes to health care operations, we believe it must be ready to find solutions to any resulting challenges faced by clients and caregivers. Therefore, we ask the province to commit to fully funding the service delivery cost increases which would result from this legislation. We are also concerned that some of the changes proposed are not the appropriate fit for our sector, and that an unintentional impact of the legislation may be a reduction in access to health care services for our clients. However, we are confident that adjustments which would solve these issues and strengthen the bill are achievable.
