NDP would forgive student loans for medical workers

Layton announces $165 million health care platform


 

The New Democrats would forgive student loans for medical workers who practice in rural areas for 10 years. The plan is part of the NDP’s health care platform unveiled at Laurentian University earlier today. The total health care platform, which also includes hiring 1,200 new doctors and encouraging Canadian doctors working in other countries to return home, would cost approximately $165 million. Layton also pledged $80 million of that to improve medical infrastructure at universities.
