Parliament hill lobby day.

The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) kicked-off Hill Day 2016 with an interactive breakfast reception in the Parliamentary Dining Room on Parliament Hill. The event gave parliamentarians an overview of home care services and programs across Canada and discussed innovative approaches to improve them.

CNA Board and staff met with 46 members of Parliament, senators and political staff to promote our three federal recommendations in advance of the 2017 federal budget and new Health Accord.

* More transparency and accountability for federal health transfers;

* Better access to home- and community-based care ; and

* A stronger economy through improved support for caregivers.

NANB President Brenda Kinney and Josette Roussel, Senior Nurse Advisor, CNA had a joint meeting with the following parliamentarians and representatives from New Brunswick: Alaina Lockhart, MP, Fundy Royal; Pat Finnigan, MP, Miramichi-Grand Lake; and Mark O'Halloran, Special Assistant for Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans, MP, Beausejour.
