This online experience looks at prescription drug insurance in Canada and the gap between the insured and the uninsured.
- Most Canadians—97.2 per cent—are eligible for some form of prescription drug coverage.
- While the gap in coverage is small, one in 10 Canadians is not enrolled in a prescription drug plan.
