The federal Department of Finance has identified a tax on health and dental benefits as a potential source of additional revenue. This could mean significant added cost to Canadians’ tax bills and to employers. It also means that Canadians may be at risk of losing their coverage if employers can’t afford to keep them insured.
Without proper health care benefits, more Canadians will enter the public system with greater health needs, driving up costs.
The Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce is joining with fellow Chambers of Commerce and lending its support to several of Canada’s leading health care associations to call on the federal government to forgo this potential taxation.
