Health Policy Initiatives: Ideas Becoming Official Policy and Beyond
Health policy initiatives, intended to maintain and improve the health of Canadians, take root in multiple ways. This session will explore how ideas for policy initiatives get started, what processes, formal/informal they typically go through, including whether they evolve slowly over time or quickly in response to something unexpected (e.g., Zika virus).
An initiative may evolve considerably for many years before a Bill is finally passed in Parliament, e.g., Vanessa’s Law. Ideas can come from individuals, advocacy groups, media, industry, industry organizations, partisan policy processes, and government agencies, for example. Other Departments may trigger policy initiatives, e.g., DND and EUNDS. Other levels of government or international initiatives may also trigger policy.
