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.

- 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.
- 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.
