This petition had 24 supporters


Canadian population is aging, and with it comes an increase in medication consumption. Every year, more and more Canadians require prescription medications for maintaining optimal health. However, Canada has the second highest prescription medications cost in the world, making them out of reach for a lot of our fellow countrymen. The Government of Canada does regulate the prices of the medication sold to retail institutions. However, the retail stores have the freedom to mark up prescription drugs, which often leads to brand-name medications costing more than twice of the price of generic ones. Therefore, action has to be taken and regulations are ought to be placed on the retailers, ensuring that the prices of brand-name medications are affordable and on par with the rest of the world.
