This document provides a roadmap for improving antimicrobial stewardship (AMS) in Canada and lays out a series of 10 areas for a national Action Plan on antimicrobial stewardship.  It reflects the broad consensus arising from recent interviews, documents and discussions - and particularly from the June 2016 National Action Roundtable on Antimicrobial Stewardship.  This Action Plan focuses on AMS in the human health context, while recognizing the importance of action in agriculture and animal health as part of a "One Health" approach to AMS.
