Health Care

Our BC Government is working to fix health care in our province and then make it work even better for you and your family. We’re taking action to reduce wait times, improve access to primary care and cancer treatments, and transforming seniors care while leading BC’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. While many improvements have already been made, there is still much more to do.
