A motion by the NDP for an overhaul to the Northern Health Travel Grant has been voted through.

Timmins-James Bay MPP Gilles Bisson says the motion being passed is a solid start, as anytime you can provide improved service for people it’s a plus.

Bisson says the grant is in need of improvements,  such as access to services and processing time.

He says hopefully through this motion all parties can come together to revitalize and revamp the Northern Health Travel Grant to better serve Northerners’ needs.
