OTTAWA — The federal government has asked the private sector to weigh in on how companies could play a role in Canada’s national dental care plan. 

The Liberals set aside $5.3 billion over the next five years to launch a dental care program for uninsured low- and middle-income families, starting with kids under the age of 12 by the end of this year.

The program is a key part of the confidence and supply deal the Liberals signed with the NDP to stave off a potential election until June 2025.

The government has issued a formal request for information, seeking input from industry players between now and Aug. 22.
