Federal Budget Loan Forgiveness program

It was brought to our attention by a fellow student member that the Federal Budget Loan Forgiveness program did not provide for the inclusion of PA students. On behalf of our student members, CAPA has sent a letter to the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Health as well as all Provincial Members of Parliament advocating for our profession to be included in the Federal  Loan Forgiveness program.

The Minister of Health and Long Term Care for Ontario (MOHLTC) wrote the Health Professionals Regulatory Advisory Council (HPRAC) asking them for advice regarding the regulation of our profession. A date of Summer for review has been sent. Work has already begun at the office in order to prepare the documents required for response to HPRAC.  Additional information can be found on the HPRAC website.
