Fighting for a National Prescription Drug Plan

Canada is the only developed nation in the world with a universal health care program that does not include a universal prescription drug plan. Unifor has been successful in negotiating prescription drug coverage for many of our members, but there are still members who lack or have incomplete coverage. Unifor is helping in the fight to ensure all Canadians can get the prescription drugs they need. To learn what Unifor is doing - and what you can do to help - visit the Unifor Canada website.

Scholarships to Make Education More Affordable

Unifor Canada recognizes that the costs associated with post-secondary education is a challenge for many working-class families. To assist in making education more accessible, 28 scholarships of $2,000 each are offered by the union. The scholarships are awarded to children of Unifor members in good standing. Students must be entering their first year of full-time post-secondary education - university, community college, technological institute, trade school, etc. in a public Canadian institution. One of these scholarships will also be available to a Unifor member with at least one year seniority. Detailed information about eligibility and how to apply can be found at unifor.org/en/education/scholarships .
