All Canadians benefit from enhanced self-care. It not only leads to better health outcomes for individuals and their families but also directly contributes to a more efficient and sustainable healthcare system.

CHP Canada is dedicated to advancing evidence-based self-care. We envision a future where the essential role Canadians play in their own health is recognized and supported throughout their lives. 

This is a future without preventable diseases and where all Canadians can safely and confidently care for themselves while also having ready access to health professionals.

We believe this can be achieved by providing people with the broadest possible access to evidence-based health products, services, tools, and information.

As demonstrated by the CHP Canada research found on this page, as well as external sources, self-care can have a positive impact both for Canadians and for their healthcare system.  Research shows that positive impacts can come from a variety of influences including:

  • Improving health literacy;
  • Increasing non-prescription access medications and;
  • Eliminating taxes on non-prescription medications to make treatment more affordable for those without access to a family doctor or a drug plan.

These are just some of the ways that we can build an efficient and long-lasting healthcare system that works better for everyone.
