Qujannamiik uqaqti. Madam Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Health.
Adequate health care funding continues to be a serious issue in Nunavut. The Canada health transfer only covers 11% of Nunavut's health care costs. This is in stark contrast to the Canadian provincial average of approximately 21%. The $35-million territorial health investment fund, which includes vital funding for medical travel, is insufficient. This disparity in health care funding between Nunavut and southern Canada is unacceptable.
Does the minister plan to address this inequity in the upcoming territorial health investment fund renewal?
