The government of Canada yesterday released its third report to Canadians on Canada’s economic action plan. This report states that:
“As part of the Action Plan, the Government announced an investment
of $500 million in Canada Health Infoway. Due diligence on this project
will not be completed prior to the start of Dscal year 2010–11. The
Government will continue to work with Canada Health Infoway
to complete the due diligence process before next steps.”
So, looks like Infoway will not receive any additional funding until at least the spring of next year. Both the CMA and the first ministers of health have both lobbied the federal government to release these funds to Infoway sooner rather than later.
