A deal has been made between Saskatchewan and federal government, allowing the province to receive new federal money for home care and mental health.
Saskatchewan will receive 190.3 million dollars for home care and 158.5 million dollars for mental health services over the next 10 years.
The province has also reached a separate agreement in its dispute with the federal government regarding private MRIs.
The dispute will be set aside for one year, giving Saskatchewan time to prove that private MRIs don’t hurt the public health-care system.
The agreement comes one day after the federal government announced deals with New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and the territories.
