Formed in 1991, HEAL - the Organizations for Health Action (formerly known as the Health Action Lobby) - is a coalition of 41 national health organizations that represents a broad cross-section of health providers, health regions, institutions and facilities. HEAL represents more than half-a-million providers and consumers of health care.

HEAL was created out of concern over the erosion of the federal government’s role in supporting a national health system. Through its history, HEAL has met with representatives of the federal government, presented Briefs to Standing Committees, and released background a series of policy papers covering a range of health policy issues, including: the role of the federal government in funding health care; health human resources; entry-to-practice issues; and the Canada Health Act.

Today, the thirteen premiers of Canada convene in Whitehorse for the meeting of the Council of the Federations. HEAL, which is a national coalition of 41 national health organizations, sent a letter to the premiers urging them to treat healthcare as a priority issue on their agenda. HEAL also sent a copy of their collaborative paper entitled The Canadian Way, which is a consensus on healthcare policy that has been reached by their 41 members on the direction in which healthcare policy needs to take in Canada.
