For the first time, The Conference Board's How Canada Performs analysis has compared the health of Canadians by individual province and territory to 16 advanced peer countries.
In this ranking, Ontario gets an overall "B" grade and ranks seventh, behind 5 countries and British Columbia. By comparison, Canada ranks 10th overall.
In this recorded webinar, Gabriela Prada and Sheila Rao present the findings of the benchmarking analysis and dig deeper into some of the factors that are influencing Ontario's health outcomes.
Through the analysis, we can see how health risk factors — such as obesity, smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity and healthy diet —impact the health of Ontarians.
