Cystic Fibrosis drug added to Ontario Drug Benefit Formulary

(September 24, 2021) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson is pleased to congratulate the Cystic Fibrosis community on the success of its years-long battle to have the life-altering medication Trikafta made available to Ontario’s CF patients. 

Health Minister Christine Elliott announced today that Trikafta has been added to the Ontario Drug Benefit Formulary. It joins Orkambi and Kalydeco, two other recently funded CF drugs. These transformational medications improve life quality and extend the lives of people living with Cystic Fibrosis.

“Much of the credit for this process goes to families in our region who brought this issue to my attention eight years ago and have lead the charge every step of the way,” said Wilson. “People like Beth and Madi Vanstone, and Sasha Haughian and Jamie Larocque, have been tireless in their efforts to access these innovative drugs and they have become true advocates in their own right.” 

“I also want to wholeheartedly thank our Health Minister Christine Elliott for making this momentous announcement,” continued Wilson. “Without her and the Ford government I do not believe we would be where we are. They deserve full recognition.”

Today’s announcement comes after complex drug approval and reimbursement processes involving both federal and provincial governments. The province’s approval is the last step. It means that doctors can now prescribe Trikafta for people aged 12 and up with cystic fibrosis and that the medication will be funded under Ontario’s publically funded drug programs. 

MPP Wilson is pleased to see the issue has finally found resolution. He has raised the question of Cystic Fibrosis medication availability numerous times in the Ontario Legislature for close to a decade.

Wilson marks Military Family Appreciation Day

Together we stand picture September 2021(September 17, 2021) Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson was at the Borden Legacy Monument this morning to mark Military Family Appreciation Day. The monument was built to honour the sacrifices of Canadian soldiers who trained at Base Borden and fought in the Battle of Vimy Ridge. You can read more about the monument by clicking here.

 

Wilson issued the following statement to mark the occasion:

 

“Canadians can’t thank members of our armed forces enough for the sacrifices they make to ensure our freedom, safety and security. 

 

Just as deserving of our appreciation are the families which stand behind these courageous men and women who protect us.  They are often unsung heroes when their enlisted spouses, parents, siblings or children are called upon to serve.

 

Military families are left behind to keep everything together at home.  They are often required to change communities on short notice, switch careers or jobs in new towns, or enroll in new schools in the middle of the academic year; all of this while living with the possibility of losing a loved one.  

 

As a citizen, and as the Member of Provincial Parliament representing Canadian Forces Base Borden, I join all Canadians in celebrating Military Family Appreciation Day.  Thank you to all of the families who support the brave soldiers who serve our country every day.”

(VIDEO) Simcoe-Grey Celebrates Deanne Rose

(August 25, 2021) It was a pleasure to join hundreds of friends and fans of Alliston native Deanne Rose in New Tecumseth to celebrate her role in winning Women’s Soccer Gold at the Tokyo Olympics this summer.   Deanne was feted with a parade through town accompanied by the blare of fire truck sirens and escorted by light-flashing police cruisers.  She graciously spent more than an hour posing for photos and signing autographs. 

I had the honour of presenting her with a plaque on behalf of the Province of Ontario.  Congratulations Deanne!  We are proud that you are one of us.

(VIDEO) Ontario Supports the Redevelopment of Collingwood General and Marine Hospital Additional Investment will Improve Infrastructure and Access to Care in the Community

CGMH redevelopment 002

(August 10, 2021) As part of its comprehensive plan to end hallway health care, the Ontario government is investing over $15 million to support the planning and design of the redeveloped Collingwood General and Marine Hospital. Once complete, the hospital’s existing aged infrastructure will be expanded and upgraded, improving access to high-quality care for people living in Collingwood and the surrounding areas.

“After years of waiting, patients and their families can finally look forward to a new and improved Collingwood General and Marine Hospital, ensuring the hospital’s dedicated staff and frontline health care workers can continue delivering high-quality care in the community,” said Christine Elliott, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “By investing in major hospital infrastructure, our government is furthering our commitment to build a modern, connected health care system and put an end to hallway health care for all Ontarians.”

“Today is an important step in the process of achieving our goal of a modern new redeveloped hospital for South Georgian Bay,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson.  “I am grateful to the Ford government for its commitment to this long overdue project.  And, on behalf of the community, I want to thank Minister Elliott for fulfilling her promise to visit Collingwood General and Marine to see first hand the need for investment in the future of health services for our fast-growing region.” 

Originally built in 1956, the current Collingwood General and Marine Hospital has been serving a growing community with an increasing senior population for over 60 years with limited upgrades. Through this investment, the hospital’s aging infrastructure will be redeveloped through a mix of new construction as well as renovations. The redeveloped hospital will include:

  • the expansion of key services, including intensive care, emergency, diagnostic imaging and the operating suite;
  • additional inpatient capacity to allow the hospital to serve more patients and families; and
  • renovations to upgrade the existing facility to ensure a comfortable environment for patients to receive care.

This funding is in addition to the $500,000 previously invested to support early capital planning. Further planning work will confirm priority programs for the hospital. Timelines for project implementation and construction will be determined once planning has been completed.

“We are very pleased to receive approval from the Capital Branch of the Ministry of Health for our Stage One submission, and to officially move to Stage Two of the five-stage process,” said Norah Holder, Collingwood General and Marine Hospital President and CEO. “Collingwood General and Marine Hospital and our community are excited to commence engaging in Stage Two of the process. This announcement represents a significant milestone regarding our hospital redevelopment project.”

In addition to supporting the hospital’s redevelopment and expansion, the Ontario government is taking further action to support Collingwood General and Marine Hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic by increasing the hospital’s operating funding for the third straight year. Collingwood General and Marine Hospital will receive over $1.9 million in additional operating funding starting this year, representing an increase of 4.2 per cent to the funding received by the hospital in 2020/21. This is the third straight year of increased hospital investments across the province.

The 2021 Budget, Ontario's Action Plan: Protecting People's Health and Our Economy, outlined a total of $1.8 billion in additional investments for hospitals in 2021-22. This includes an increase of $778 million in funding to meet current and future demands for services, and ensures all publicly funded hospitals will receive a minimum 1 per cent increase to help them keep pace with patient needs and to increase access to high-quality care for patients and families across Ontario.

Quick Facts

Collingwood General and Marine Hospital provides a variety of health care services to more than 60,000 people who live and work in the community, as well as over 3.5 million annual visitors who visit the surrounding communities.

As Ontario continues on the path to reopening and recovery, the government is investing up to $324 million in new funding to enable hospitals and the community health sector to perform more surgeries, MRI and CT scans and procedures, as part of a wider, comprehensive surgical recovery plan to provide patients with the care they need and reduce wait surgical times.

The government is investing more than $21 billion in capital grants over the next 10 years for hospital projects across Ontario that will lead to $30 billion in hospital infrastructure.

As part of the province’s fall preparedness plan, Collingwood General and Marine Hospital received funding for up to 25 additional transitional beds to help build additional capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under the 2021 Budget, Ontario is investing an additional $1.8 billion in the hospital sector in 2021-2022, bringing the total additional investment in hospitals since the start of the pandemic to over $5.1 billion. This includes creating more than 3,100 additional hospital beds to increase capacity and reduce occupancy pressures caused by COVID-19.

Relief for Tourism Industry

June 13, 2021 - Help is on the way for Ontario’s tourism industry.  The federal government has announced a new Tourism Relief Fund to support the embattled sector as it prepares to welcome back domestic travellers and re-position Canada as a world class destination. 

The $500-million national fund is designed to help businesses and organizations adapt their operations to meet public health requirements while investing in products and services to facilitate future growth. 

“Tourism is a cornerstone of our regional economy,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson.  “I look forward to seeing local operators benefit from this program as they adapt their operations and develop new experiences for future visitors to enjoy.”

Tourism is a key economic driver in Ontario.  In 2018, the industry supported more than 390,000 jobs and generated over $36 billion of economic activity for the province.

The Tourism Relief Fund will provide eligible businesses with non-repayable contributions of up to $100,000 for up to 50 percent of eligible costs; or fully repayable contributions up to $500,000 for up to 75 percent of eligible costs.

Eligible applicants include tourism businesses and organizations that cater mainly to visitors, including Indigenous organizations and cooperatives.   To be considered, applicants must meet at least one of the following criteria:

-     Be a key supplier or operator in the visitor experience; 

-     Be part of a defines tourism cluster or a tourism dependent community, including supporting downtown cores; or

-     Provide an anchor product or service in a tourism destination.

The Tourism Relief Fund is administered by FedDev Ontario.  For more details on eligibility criteria, please consult the Application guide.

Applications are available here.

Cystic Fibrosis Fight Coming to an End

June 21, 2021 – Health Canada has approved Trikafta for sale in Canada.  At the same time the national agency responsible for negotiating drug prices on behalf of provincial, territorial and federal drug plans has agreed on pricing with the manufacturer of two other CF drugs, Kalydeco and Orkambi.  These transformational medications improve life quality and extend the lives of people living with Cystic Fibrosis. 

“Much of the credit for this progress goes to families in our region who have fought long and hard for these life-saving drugs,” said Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson.  “I’ve been proud to work alongside people like Beth and Madi Vanstone, and Sasha Haughian and Jamie Larocque, who have been tireless in their efforts to access these innovative drugs that are available, and paid for by health plans, in many other countries,” he added.  

Ottawa’s announcement means that doctors can now prescribe Trikafta for people aged 12 and up with cystic fibrosis.  And the deal between the pan-Canadian Pharmaceutical Alliance (pCPA) and the drug manufacturer means that provincial governments can now negotiate agreements with Vertex Pharmaceuticals (Canada). 

 “The ball is now in Doug Ford’s court,” said Mr. Wilson.  “I am confident the government of Ontario will live up to its promise to list these drugs on the Ontario Drug Benefit Formulary and quickly make them available to patients like 16 year-old Finn Murphy of Collingwood, who wants to get back to playing hockey.”

MPP Wilson has raised the question of Cystic Fibrosis medication availability numerous times over the past 10 years in the Ontario legislature.  Minister of Health Christine Elliott has committed to ensuring the government will move quickly to list them on the Ontario Drug Benefit Formulary.

18 Year-olds Eligible to Book Vaccine this Week

May 17, 2021 - Ontario is opening up eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines to everyone aged 18 and older a week ahead of schedule. As the pace of the vaccine rollout continues to accelerate with 2.2 million doses scheduled to arrive this week, the government is extending booking eligibility at mass immunization clinics to individuals aged 18 and over.
 
As of 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, individuals aged 18 and over in 2021 across Ontario will be eligible to book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment through the provincial booking system and call centre.
 
Individuals who are 17 years old and are turning 18 in 2021 will also be eligible to book their COVID-19 vaccination appointment only for the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer vaccine is currently the only COVID-19 vaccine that has been authorized by Health Canada for use in youth aged 12 and over. The provincial booking system will note which clinics are not offering vaccines for those who are 17 years old.
 
This high number of doses is due to an early delivery of the week of May 24 shipment, to accommodate the long weekend, and is an opportunity for the province to offer an appointment to more Ontarians ahead of schedule.
 
Ontario is experiencing very positive trends in vaccine demand. The province and public health units will continue to make appointments available as vaccine supply is confirmed.
 
The province achieved a significant milestone on May 12, 2021, having administered a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine to over half of all Ontarians aged 18 and over, and is on track to reach 65 per cent of adults by the end of the month. As of May 15, 2021, over seven million doses have been administered province-wide.

Province Launches New Ontario Tourism and Travel Small Business Support Grant

The Ontario government is providing one‐time payments of $10,000 to $20,000 to support eligible small tourism and travel businesses struggling to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic through the new $100-million Ontario Tourism and Travel Small Business Support Grant.
