Premier Ghiz tapped to co-lead second phase of National Health Care Working Group

Premier's Office

Premier Robert Ghiz and Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall have been named by their colleagues to continue their work with the Health Care Innovation Working Group for a second year during the annual Council of the Federation summer meeting that took place in Halifax.

“This has been a very productive process – and we achieved a great deal in a very short period of time. In January, we were asked to do this work and have results by summer. I am very pleased that Premier Wall and I kept to that commitment and can continue to work together on a file that is so important to Canadians,” said Premier Robert Ghiz.

“We know that a great deal of valuable work is being done in every province and territory of Canada when it comes to health care. That means a collaborative approach between provinces – where best practices and solutions are shared – is incredibly valuable for every jurisdiction,” continued Premier Robert Ghiz.

Canadian Premiers have recognized the great work led by Premiers Ghiz and Wall with the Health Care Innovation Working Group and unanimously endorsed the continuation of the leadership they demonstrated in the first phase.

Premier Ghiz also thanked the Working Group and their partners including the Canadian Medical Association, the Canadian Nurses Association and the Health Action Lobby for their collaborative work on this initiative over the past six months and look forward to a progress report in advance of the 2013 summer meeting of the Council of the Federation.
