ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the need for public engagement when choosing health priorities in Canada. According to the authors, the loss of public confidence is the threat to health care system and not the ability to pay health services. They say that a committed member of general public health section is required to achieve successful public engagement. Moreover, they cited examples of successful public engagements such as a four-month public consultation in Alberta regarding the Alberta Health Act.
