There are people who work and can't afford their medication.  Every province should have, at the very least, a comprehensive catastrophic drug program.

My employee is on a medication for MS. It would cost him over $1600 a month. That's more than half of his after tax salary for the month. Because of Manitoba's prescription drug program, he only has to pay about a month's worth of costs every year.
