Yukon, N.W.T. sign agreement in principle with Ottawa on health funding – GLOBAL

July 6, 2023

Yukon has signed on to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s health funding offer, which would see $380 million in federal funding delivered to the territory over 10 years.

News of that deal came less than half an hour after Northwest Territories announced its own agreement in principle with Ottawa, worth $361 over 10 years.

Both agreements include a boost to health-care transfers from the federal government, and $73-million for each territory focused on their specific concerns.

Trudeau presented his offer to provincial and territorial premiers in February as local politicians, doctors, nurses and health advocates raised concerns about a national health-care crisis.

Nunavut and Quebec are now the only provincial and territorial governments without a new health agreement.
