    Rona AmbroseToday I hosted a productive symposium on prescription drug abuse in Edmonton. Following the symposium, I announced federal funding to increase the number of annual pharmacy inspections carried out by Health Canada. Working with pharmacies across the country, this will help to ensure the safe handling, storage and security of prescription drugs in Canada, and reduce opportunities for the diversion of prescription drugs for illegal sale and use. Our Government has made it a priority to fight prescription drug abuse, and we are investing heavily in a range of initiatives to address this issue. Our team of inspectors will be working in cooperation with pharmacies across the country to track, report, and monitor the movement of prescription drugs which will ultimately help ensure they are being used for the right reasons by the right patients. bit.ly/1Fso1Fx Aujourd’hui à Edmonton, j’ai animé un symposium productif sur l’abus de médicaments sur ordonnance. Après le symposium, j’ai annoncé un financement fédéral visant à augmenter le nombre d’inspections annuelles de pharmacies réalisées par Santé Canada. En collaboration avec des pharmacies partout au Canada, cet investissement permettra de garantir le traitement et l’entreposage sécuritaires et la sécurité des médicaments sur ordonnance au Canada et de réduire les possibilités de détournement de médicaments sur ordonnance pour la vente et l’utilisation illégales. Notre gouvernement a fait de la lutte contre l’abus de médicaments d’ordonnance une priorité, et nous investissons massivement dans une gamme d’initiatives pour combattre ce problème. Notre équipe d’inspecteurs travaillera en collaboration avec les pharmacies de partout au pays pour suivre, déclarer et surveiller les déplacements de médicaments d’ordonnance, ce qui permettra en fin de compte de veiller à ce qu’ils soient utilisés pour les bonnes raisons par les bons patients bit.ly/1S8jkpS

    Rona AmbroseToday I attended the Prescribing Practices Forum in Hamilton, this marked an important milestone in our government’s efforts to work closely with partners to tackle prescription drug abuse. The Forum, funded by the Government of Canada and hosted by McMaster University, brings together regulatory authorities, health professionals, provinces and territories and experts to identify steps to improve prescribing practices, with the ultimate goal of reducing the abuse of prescription drugs. I underscored our Government’s commitment to fighting prescription drug abuse by announcing nearly $8 million in funding today to support 6 projects focused on improving prescriber education and the development of a coordinated national approach for the monitoring and surveillance of prescription drugs. Prescription drug abuse has devastating effects on individuals, families and communities. It is important to acknowledge the role that improved prescribing practices can have in helping to reduce prescription drug abuse. The projects announced today will promote responsible prescribing and fund a national approach to monitoring prescription drug abuse, which will better connect the experts in the field and further unite us in our fight against prescription drug abuse. While at McMaster Univeristy I was happy to celebrate the grand opening of the David Braley Health Sciences Centre! ow.ly/N0aGU Aujourd'hui, j’ai assisté, à Hamilton, au Forum sur les pratiques de prescription. Cela a marqué un jalon important dans les efforts de notre gouvernement à travailler étroitement avec ses partenaires dans la lutte contre l'abus de médicaments sur ordonnance. Le forum, financé par le gouvernement du Canada et organisé par l'Université McMaster, réunit les autorités de réglementation, les professionnels de la santé, les provinces et les territoires ainsi que les expertsafin de déterminer les mesures à prendre pour améliorer les pratiques de prescription. Le but ultime est de réduire l'abus de médicaments sur ordonnance. J'ai souligné l'engagement de notre gouvernement à lutter contre l'abus de médicaments surordonnance en annonçant aujourd’hui un financement de près de 8 millions de dollars quiappuiera six projets. Ces projets ont pour but d’améliorer l'éducation des prescripteurs et de permettre le développement d'une approche nationale coordonnée pour le contrôle et la surveillance des médicaments sur ordonnance. L'abus de médicaments d'ordonnance a des effets dévastateurs sur les personnes, les familles et les collectivités. Il est donc important de reconnaître le rôle que peuvent jouer des pratiques de prescription améliorées dans la réduction de l'abus de médicaments d'ordonnance. Les projets annoncés aujourd'hui favoriseront la prescription responsable et financeront une approche nationale pour le suivi de l'abus de médicaments d'ordonnance qui améliorera les liens entre les experts de ce domaine et nous unira dans la lutte contre ce phénomène. Alors qu’à l'Université McMaster j’étais heureuse de célébrer l'inauguration du Centre des sciences de la santé David Braley! bit.ly/1EM2Klm

    Gail SheaCanada 150 Community Infrastructure Program - See more at: http://pm.gc.ca/eng/news/2015/05/15/canada-150-community-infrastructure-program#sthash.bvPY0INx.dpufIn 2017, Canada will mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation. This milestone will provide an opportunity to celebrate Canada’s history, heritage, values and future. It is an historic opportunity for Canadians to connect with our past, celebrate our achievements and create a lasting legacy. To this end, on May 15, 2015, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced $150 million for the new Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, which will provide significant support for community and cultural infrastructure across the country as a way to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial. The program will provide support for the renovation, expansion and rehabilitation of existing infrastructure that provides community and cultural benefits for the public. Projects under the following categories may be eligible: community centres (including Royal Canadian Legions), cultural centres and museums, parks, recreational trails, libraries, recreational facilities, tourism facilities, docks, cenotaphs and other existing community infrastructure. The program, which is anticipated to support up to 1,800 projects in communities of all sizes across the country, will be delivered nationally through regional agencies. Eligible recipients for funding include provinces, territories, municipalities, regional governments, Aboriginal organizations and not-for-profit organizations. Applicants can submit their application online through their respective regional development agency. Extensive consultations with Canadians helped inform the initiative. Selected projects are expected to be completed by the end of the 2017 construction season to best support Canada 150 celebrations. The program is expected to boost economic activity through infrastructure investments, build community-based partnerships and modernize existing community facilities. The Government’s Track Record on Infrastructure Support The Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program is one of several infrastructure-related initiatives that our Government has undertaken to generate well-being and prosperity across Canada. Other examples include: The $53 billion New Building Canada Plan launched in 2014 to provide stable funding for a 10-year period through three key funds: The Community Improvement Fund: $32.2 billion over 10 years consisting of an indexed federal Gas Tax Fund and the incremental goods and services tax (GST) rebate for municipalities to build roads, public transit, recreational facilities and other community infrastructure across Canada. The New Building Canada Fund: $14 billion over 10 years in support of major economic infrastructure projects of national, regional and local significance. A renewed P3 Canada Fund: $1.25 billion over five years to continue supporting innovative ways to build infrastructure projects faster and provide better value for Canadian taxpayers through public-private partnerships. The $33 billion 2007 Building Canada Plan, the first long-term, stable and predictable federal plan to provide funding to provinces, territories and municipalities to support their respective public infrastructure priorities. Infrastructure stimulus measures, which have supported 30,000 projects across the country, as part of the 2009 Economic Action Plan. The result is a dramatic increase in federal funding for infrastructure. Annual federal support has increased from $571 million in 2003-2004 to an estimated $5 billion in 2015-2016. - See more at: http://pm.gc.ca/eng/news/2015/05/15/canada-150-community-infrastructure-program#sthash.bvPY0INx.dpuf
