Five things Canadians get wrong about the health system

How our health system should be reformed, and in what measures, is nothing short of a national pastime in Canada

1. Doctors are self-employed, not government employees
2. Canada has 15 different health care systems
3. Funded health care services are not provided equally across the country
4. User fees charged to patients are not permitted
5. Canada does not truly have a “single payer” system meaning a significant portion of Canadian health care comes from both public and private financing
