The Canadian Covid Care Alliance, formed in April 2021, and now having some 400 members (medical doctors, scientists, concerned citizens), has issued a major policy document presenting its perspectives about how to cope with C19.
Major demands in the declaration include the replacement of (late) hospital treatment by (early) outpatient treatment for C19, a pause in the vaccination program, the end of lockdowns and the end of the Declaration of Emergency.
The document is at odds with about all governmental policies in Canada, either at the federal or provincial levels.
Note that a significant share of the medical profession in Canada supports the current official policies and sometimes demands even more, in the form of strict “Zero Covid” policies similar to those of Australia and New-Zealand, aiming at eradicating the virus through lockdowns and other restrictions (and also denying the population early treatment).
The Executive Summary is presented below. You can download the full document at this link (large file, requires high speed).

COVID-19 Canadian Covid Care Alliance Declaration
To the Canadian Government, Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), Health Canada and the Media
1) Remove the Declaration of Emergency.
2) Develop effective national outpatient treatment guidelines based on the most-up-to-date evidence. Instruct PHAC to inform and educate physicians and the general public about the importance of prophylaxis and early treatment of COVID-19. The government should ensure the necessary supply of repurposed medications and prophylaxis agents.
3) Pause the current COVID-19 vaccination program pending full evaluation of impacts and benefits.
4) Halt the Vaccination Passport (“Vax Pass”) program and do not permit any company, agency, or organization to unlawfully mandate COVID-19 vaccinations.
5) Do not permit any infringement on medical privacy by governments and businesses and end all coercive measures limiting freedom of individual medical choice.
6) Do not permit any infringement on the ability to move freely, both within and between provinces as well as internationally (leaving/entering Canada).
7) Do not impose any future lockdowns or quarantines of healthy individuals in view of the enormous destabilizing impacts on the economy, mental health and society at large. The government should instead focus their attention and funding to help those who feel vulnerable, if they so choose to accept the government’s assistance.
8) Recognize physicians and researchers of diverse opinions (from the CCCA and other affiliations) as essential stakeholders to: 1) engage in an open and public forum to discuss early treatment options, COVID-19 vaccine program, the proposed vaccine mandates, Vaccine Passports, lockdowns and masking; and 2) to participate in the COVID-19 Planning and Implementation Team(s), the COVID-19 Immunity Task Force, the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) and the provincial Science Tables to address the evidence-based science supporting non- pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs).
