What is this engagement about?
The Province has established a task force of experts to provide advice on the best path to eliminate MSP premiums within the government’s current mandate. The MSP Task Force will examine the best approach to replacing the foregone revenue from the elimination of regressive MSP premiums.
The Province is committed to eliminating MSP premiums within four years. The government’s first step was to cut premiums by 50% for all British Columbians, effective January 1, 2018.
How can my contribution make a difference?
British Columbians, businesses, academics, and other stakeholders may send a written submission to MSPTaskForce@gov.bc.ca. Please send your ideas by January 31, 2018 at 4:00 p.m.
The Task Force’s final report is due to government by March 31, 2018.
Note: Submissions may be posted publicly to the engagement site.
