Dr Eric Hoskins, former Ontario minister of health and long-term care and member of provincial parliament for St. Paul’s, Toronto, has been named head of the newly created Advisory Council on the Implementation of National Pharmacare. When the federal budget was released on February 27, Finance minister Bill Morneau announced the creation of the council and the appointment of Hoskins, a day after Hoskins announced his resignation from Queen’s Park. Reporting to the federal minister of health and Morneau, the council has been tasked to study the economic and social impact of domestic and international pharmacare models. Hoskins and his team will work with experts in the field as well holding dialogs with national, provincial, territorial and Indigenous leaders. Hoskins is a medical doctor and member of the Order of Canada. He represented the provincial riding of St. Paul’s from 2009 up to recently and served in the cabinet of premier Dalton McGuinty and his successor, Kathleen Wynne.
