Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland will be making a dental care announcement in Toronto on Wednesday. She will be joined by federal health minister Mark Holland.

The first phase of the Canadian Dental Care Plan was officially launched across the country on May 1. While 1.9 million seniors can now access the plan, many other Canadians must wait a bit longer.

Coverage became available on May 1 for seniors aged 70 and older. Seniors aged 65 and above who meet the criteria can also now apply for the dental plan.
