Ontario Premier Doug Ford says there won’t be individual deals on health-care funding between provinces and the federal government.

Premiers and health ministers across the country have called on Ottawa to increase its share of health-care costs to 35 %, up from the current 22 %.

Earlier, Federal Health Minister Jean Yves Duclos sais there’s been major progress in the healthcare talks with the provinces but Premier Ford did not give any indication that a deal is close.

Duclos says there are five fundamental areas of shared priorities that have become the common focus of the talks.

They include reducing backlogs and supporting health-care workers as well as helping Canadians age in dignity.
