Healthcare System of Canada

Canada has a universal healthcare system, also known as Medicare, which is funded by the federal government and provincial and territorial governments. It is a single-payer system, which means that the government is the only payer for medically necessary hospital and physician services.

Universal Coverage

All Canadian citizens and permanent residents are eligible for Medicare. This includes services provided by general practitioners, specialists, hospital stays, and surgeries. The coverage typically extends to a wide range of essential medical treatments and procedures.


The cost of healthcare in Canada is relatively low, thanks to the single-payer system.

High-quality care

 Canada has a well-trained healthcare workforce and provides high-quality care.

Out-of-pocket costs

There are some out-of-pocket costs for services that are not covered by Medicare, such as prescription drugs, dental care, and vision care.

Private and Public Facilities

Both public and private healthcare facilities exist in Canada, but the vast majority of healthcare services are provided by public institutions. Private healthcare facilities often offer services such as dental care, vision care, and some elective medical procedures that may not be covered by the public system.
