Petition to the Government of Canada
Under the current system, very high costs put low-income individuals and families, people experiencing homelessness, people in institutions and our seniors at a disadvantage;
Poor dentition often results in discrimination in hiring or in everyday life;
Dental issues can also have a major impact on people’s personal and social lives; and
Good dentition is a key to health, pride and self-esteem.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada and Quebec, call upon the Government of Canada to implement a policy of providing free dental health care of all types (general anesthesia, implants, periodontal treatments, orthodontic treatments, prosthodontic treatments) to all residents across the country.
