The Canadian Dental Association (CDA) is pleased to see that there is a focus on providing dental care to those Canadians who are not already covered by private insurance.

The CDA is always committed to working with any government to establish and maintain dental programs to meet the needs of those who are not currently able to access dental care. Interested to understand clearly who will be covered and what will be covered, the CDA also looks forward to consulting with any and all parties going forward to ensure that programs are appropriately designed to provide affordable access to oral health for all Canadians.

The CDA is the national voice for dentistry in Canada, and supports dedicated funding as part of the Canada Health Transfer between the Federal Government and the provinces for targeted oral health programs administered by the provinces and territories.
