Effective June 30, 2012, the Canadian government will reduce the federal health care services provided to refugees. Medication, emergency dental care and vision care will no longer be provided. Preventative health care will be limited and some refugee claimants will be denied even emergency care. Mike Dillon, a family doctor who has worked with newcomers in Winnipeg for nearly 20 years, talks about the impact of the changes. There's more information on the issue, including details for the June 18 National Day of Action for Refugee Care, at doctorsforrefugeecare.ca.
