Health expenditure in Canada in 2017, by province and territory


In order to ensure fairness among provinces, the federal government, through equalization payments, attempts to guarantee that the standards of health, education and welfare are the same for everyone in Canada. The Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) reported that health care

expenditures per person vary across the country from $7,378 in Newfoundland and Labrador and $7,329 in Alberta, to $6,367 in Ontario and $6,321 in British Columbia [as shown in Figure 1]. This variation across the country occurs for many reasons, including differences in population demographics and health status, prescribing practices, public program design, and other factors.
