About the Webinar

Although it has a universal health care system that must comply with the principles of the Canada Health Act, Quebec has experimented with implementing specific public policies and programs that differ significantly from those of other provinces in several key respects. Yanick Labrie summarizes Quebec’s relatively unique approach to health care in the Canadian landscape in order to show the compatibility and potential benefits of public- private partnerships within the framework of a universal health care system.

This is a previously recorded webinar. The recording includes a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period by LIVE attendees. If you are interested in attending one of our upcoming webinars, look under the Upcoming Events tab.
