Petition to the Government of Canada

  Whereas:

  

    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‚Äôs 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.
