Quebec has a new action group to tackle the issue of employee health benefits
Over the past few months, some DC members from Québec have shown an interest in being involved in advocacy to increase coverage of dietitian services through employee health benefits. A DC action group focusing on this issue has been formed and the first meeting was held in November. In early 2020, the action group will work on developing an action plan and will update members in the Québec region on the progress of their work through regional announcements.
As with other action groups working on this issue across the country, a representative of this new Quebec action group will join the Employee Health Benefits Advocacy advisory committee. Québec is the sixth province with an action group working on employee health benefits advocacy. Let’s keep spreading the word!
If you are interested in being involved in the Québec action group, please contact Marie-Ève Guérette St-Amour
, Regional Executive Director.
