  • Agenda
  • Summary Notes
  • The Credit Valley Hospital—Sustainability Slide

    This slide, prepared by the Credit Valley Hospital, shows the relative performance of Canadian provinces and selected countries in terms of health spending (as a per cent of GDP) and life expectancy. It illustrates that greater spending on health does not necessarily lead to better health outcomes. It also shows that when it comes to spending and results, significant differences exist—not only among countries, but also among Canadian provinces.
