Federal budgets have always been very removed from everyday life. But it doesn't have to be that way. They can be participatory and ask regular Canadians howthey want their tax dollars spent, instead of having Ottawa tell them where the money will go.
This year, as part of CCPA's Alternative Federal Budget project, we're asking how innovative health care funds should be distributed in your community. We've created a participatory health innovation fund so that you can show us what kind of health infrastructure would reflect and serve the priorities of your community.
Visit our Community Health Innovation Fund and submit your answer by Monday, February 18th. The results of this consultation will be included in the 2013 Alternative Federal Budget.
