Acerca de


The introduction of medicare in Saskatchewan marks a dividing point in the history of the province and Canada. Before 1962, access to medical care was predicated on ability to pay and private health insurance.  After 1962, access to needed medical care became a right in Saskatchewan, later extended to the rest of Canada.  The battle to establish medicare was hard fought and in the front lines were the community clinics.  Stan Rands was one of the key individuals who established and managed community clinics in Saskatchewan. 

Here is his story of how the medicare battle was fought by those who not only wanted to eliminate money as a barrier to care but also wanted to change the way health care was delivered. Privilege and Policy: A History of Community Clinics in Saskatchewan is the inside story of a more radical vision of medicare, one that has still not been achieved in Canada.

About the Author:

A Rhodes scholar, Stan Rands worked as a senior civil servant in the Psychiatric Services Branch of the Department of Public Health in Saskatchewan for over a decade before becoming the first executive director of the Community Health Service (Sask) Association months after the Doctors' Strike of 1962. For the next decade, he recruited new doctors who were sympathetic to the ideals of the community clinics and he struggled in favour of a physician payment system that would encourage better care for patients. In his later years, he was a university professor and community clinic board member as well as social justice activist. Stan Rands died in 1985.

Gregory P. Marchildon currently holds an Ontario Research Chair in Health Policy and System Design with the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto. Prior to this, he served as a Canada Research Chair in Public Policy and Economic History, and professor in the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Regina.

Catherine Leviten-Reid is an assistant professor in the Shannon School of Business, Cape Breton University, where she teaches in the MBA in Community Economic Development program. She does research on community enterprises that deliver health and social care. Catherine has a PhD in Human Ecology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for the Study of Co-operatives, University of Saskatchewan, from 2008 to 2009, and served as a director of the Saskatoon Community Clinic from 2008 to 2010.
