Canada’s healthcare spending is over $200 billion and growing and some have compared the growth to a healthcare “spending disease”. Since 2011, Canada has experienced weak economic growth and a tightening of fiscal budgets. As a result, spending on health has not kept pace with inflation and population growth combined. Current trends appear similar to the fiscal restraint period of the mid-1990s, which was then followed by a period of re-investment. Without major structural changes to the system or fundamental alterations in patterns of expenditures, will the current slow spending growth be an enduring feature of Canadian healthcare?
