Summary:

The BC Association of Community Health Centres (BCACHC) does not support the privatization of health service delivery in Canada as seen with some of the recently formed telehealth companies. BCACHC advocates for a renewed and strengthened public health care system that ensures all Canadians have access to appropriate and high-quality care. CHCs are a critical component of a public health care as they  ensure services are available to the most vulnerable members of our communities should be provided with sustainable funding to play this critical role.
