"The First Fight for Medicare" - SFL

Next Year Country

Below is a short booklet published by the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour following the historic battle for medicare in Saskatchewan. It summarizes the events of 1962 and was distributed throughout Canada and internationally.

The labour movement was aware of the historic importance of this accomplishment and wanted to share its lessons with the broader labour and social movements.


  1. We did a video docementary - Moving Medicare Forward - that looks at the key issues emerging with Medicare as we move beyond the first 50 years.
    You can access it on You Tube - just search for Moving Medicare Forward.
