Ontario NDP Announces Full Dental Care Coverage If Elected

Ontario’s NDP is promising to introduce “Canada’s first universal Pharmacare plan” that would cover dental care and prescription drug costs should the party form a government following the June provincial election.

NDP Leader Andrea Horwath announced the plan at a campaign-style event in downtown Toronto on Saturday that laid out five key planks of her election platform.

“We are going to make sure every working person in Ontario has dental benefits. And we will make the largest investment in public dental coverage in Ontario’s history — so that every senior can get the dental care they need. And every person on social assistance can get the dental care they need,” she told a packed room of supporters.
