The NDP is willing to waive a key deadline contained within its working agreement with the Liberals that states pharmacare legislation must be passed by the end of the year.

Since March, 2022, the New Democrats and the Liberal minority government have had a supply-and-confidence agreement in place to work together on priority issues.

The arrangement is designed to last until the fall of 2025. A federal election is not expected imminently because of the agreement.

One of the stipulations of the agreement is the need for “progress toward a universal national pharmacare program by passing a Canada Pharmacare Act by the end of 2023.”
