Summary

The goal of this project was to raise the level of informed debate among policy makers and Canadians generally on a variety of subjects relating to the Canadian health care system. This series of reports was published over five years and addressed such topics as the possibility of introducing private hospitals in Canada, wait times experienced by patients in the current system, the restrictions doctors faced in practicing medicine in Canada, the degree to which Canadians access alternative or complementary medicines outside of the medical system, and the degree to which the government intervenes in health care provisioning. The project resulted in a number of publications.
