Federal Government Announces Commitment to Dental Funding
Mar 22, 2022
The Liberal Party of Canada and Canada’s New Democratic Party have agreed to prioritize the launch of a new dental care program for low-income Canadians. This program would start with under 12-year-olds in 2022, then expand to under 18-year-olds, seniors and persons living with a disability in 2023, then full implementation by 2025. The program would be restricted to families with an income of less than $90,000 annually, with no co-pays for anyone under $70,000 annually in income.
