The 2022 Quebec general election held on October 3, 2022 resulted in a second decisive victory for the Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ), led by François Legault. The CAQ won 90 of the 125 seats in the National Assembly, 16 more than in 2018, with 40.98% of the popular vote.

For more details on the Legault government’s first mandate, we invite you to consult the Legault Polimeter I and the following book: Bilan du gouvernement de la CAQ : Entre nationalisme et pandémie (2022).

Promise History

2.12.22 - “A re-elected CAQ government will demand] that the federal government increase the level of its unconditional contribution on a per capita basis to their overall healthcare costs through the Canada Health Transfer (CHT) from 22% to 35%. Going forward, the federal government’s contribution should be maintained through an escalation mechanism that reflects the 6% average annual growth in provincial healthcare spending”

“The $196.1-billion federal offer to assist ailing health systems presented at an in-person First Ministers’ meeting last week includes both increases to the amount budgeted to flow through the Canada Health Transfer (CHT) as well as $25 billion for bilateral deals tailored to each province and territory’s health-care system’s needs”

Justification

Although the Quebec government agreed to the federal offers which are lower than the suggested 35%, it continues to demand higher health transferts as do other provinces.

“Trudeau’s proposal also includes a five per cent annual hike to the CHT for the next five years, with a built-in mechanism to permanently increase funding in the years after. …Government data suggests this funding boost will increase the CHT by some 61 per cent over the next 10 years. That amounts to about $17.3 billion in new money for the provinces and territories to prop up a faltering system. …The premiers had been asking Ottawa to increase the Canada Health Transfer to provinces by $28 billion a year. “
