About the Health Council of Canada
Canada's Prime Minister and the provincial and territorial premiers established the Health Council of Canada and later enhanced our role through two agreements referred to as "the Accords" - the 2003 First Ministers' Accord on Health Care Renewal, and the 2004 10-Year Plan to Strengthen Health Care. The ministers of health in the 12 jurisdictions that signed the Accords are the Health Council's "corporate members."
