NDP statement on the public sector workers strike

Canada's NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh issued the following statement:

“I am deeply disappointed by the government's failure to reach an agreement with the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). These dedicated workers answered the call to action during the pandemic – making sure that Canadians had the support they needed to get through a challenging time.

For two years, PSAC members have been voicing their legitimate demands for fair wages, job security, and a safe working environment. Yet, the government continued to drag its feet and has provoked this crisis.

New Democrats stand in solidarity with these workers and their demands for respect. They had Canadians’ backs when we needed them - now we have theirs.”

Canadian Dental Care Plan

Qualification Requirements:

Eligibility for the CDCP is determined based on several criteria. Currently the program is expanding to seniors, children under 18 and people with disabilities. Eventually all Canadians who meet the following criteria will qualify:

  • Lack of access to private dental insurance.
  • Adjusted family net income below $90,000.
  • Canadian residency for tax purposes.
  • Having filed a tax return in the previous year.

Note: Canadian residents who have access to dental coverage through a social program offered by a province or territory and/or the federal government can still qualify for the CDCP if they meet all the eligibility criteria.
