Healthcare, Childcare & Social Programming

I. The Maverick Party will advocate for an examination of the existing childcare provisions with the goal of supporting families with children through tax benefits or direct financial compensation, thereby allowing families to make the best choices regarding childcare for their families.

II. The Maverick Party will resist the Federal Governments intrusions into Healthcare and social programming and will not seek to exchange cash payments from tax points at this time. We will advocate for the western provinces to re-assert their jurisdiction in areas that were provincial jurisdiction that over time have been ceded to the federal government under the pressure of financial renumeration.

III. The Maverick Party will advocate for western provinces to have greater flexibility of healthcare delivery, with emphasis placed upon innovation and research into best practices in other jurisdictions around the world.

IV. The Maverick Party supports the review of seniors’ health care benefits and pensions to ensure they have adequate services and support in their retirement.
