Leger conducted a Canada-wide survey on Canadian healthcare from January 6-17, 2022 on behalf of the Council of the Federation.

The survey explores Canadians’

  • perspectives on the relative importance of healthcare
  • assessment of healthcare systems overall
  • perspectives on the federal-provincial healthcare relationship
  • healthcare system messaging
  • and more

SOME OF THE KEY FINDINGS OF OUR CANADIAN HEALTHCARE SURVEY INCLUDE…

  • Canadians believe that healthcare is one of the most important domestic issues facing Canada today.
  • 56% of Canadians believe that the quality of healthcare provided in their province or territory has worsened over the past 5 years.
  • 78% believe the pandemic has had a large negative impact on Canada’s healthcare systems.
  • 82% of Canadians are worried about getting health services when they are needed.
  • 87% of Canadians agree that an immediate increase in funding and resources is needed to help alleviate the considerable strain of the pandemic on their province or territory’s healthcare system.
  • 22% of Canadians believe that the federal government currently provides an adequate amount of funding to provinces/territories to properly deliver health services to citizens.
  • 56% of Canadians feel it is unfair that the provinces and territories have to make up over three-quarters of the cost of providing healthcare services in Canada.

SURVEY METHODOLOGY

  • 2,614 residents of Canada aged 18 or older were surveyed online using Leger’s online panel, LEO, from January 6 to 17, 2022.
  • The survey was available in English and French.
  • To ensure a fully representative sample, the data were weighted by age, gender and region based on Statistics Canada data.
  • If the data were collected through a probability sample, the margin of error for a sample of n=2,614 would be ±1.9%, 19 times out of 20.
