PSHCP Hearing Update

April 12, 2017

The hearing was held on April 10 and 11 in response to the Association’s application to declare unlawful the Government of Canada’s actions in relation to unilaterally changing the Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP) cost-sharing formula for federal public sector retirees. Federal Retirees were represented by Gowling WLG lawyers David Law and Guy Régimbald.

The Honourable Ann Marie McDonald heard the case at the Federal Court in Ottawa, and reserved her decision. The parties to the proceeding – the Association and the Auditor General of Canada – will be informed of the decision in writing in due course.
