Ontario’s reached an agreement with the federal government that’ll increase funding for home care and mental health.
Talks last year between Ottawa and the provinces and territories failed to produce a new national health accord.
The federal government had offered $11-billion for mental health and home care over 10 years.
Ottawa reached a bilateral deal with New Brunswick soon far and agreements with other provinces and territories followed.
