(Quebec) The Minister of Health, Christian Dubé, will present on Wednesday the long-awaited bill aimed at making the health network more efficient.
He announced on social media on Tuesday morning that the piece of legislation, which should, among other things, create the Health Quebec agency, will be tabled on March 29, the first anniversary of his “Health Plan”.

On Monday, the daily also reported more centralized collective bargaining, network management that would go in the same direction, as well as differentiated wages according to regions and shifts.
