British Columbia has become the first provincial to sign the federal government's health accord. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the 10-year, $196 billion pact in February. As part of the signing of the agreement, Health Minister Mark Holland said that BC will receive $1.2 billion over three years. As part of the deal, the province promised to collaborate with the First Nations Health Authority to strengthen treatment and care operations. The health deal with the provinces has been announced as a response to the current health-care crisis. Except for Quebec, all provinces and territories have signed on to the accord thus far.
