'It's not free': Canadian health care insurance almost doubles in cost during last decade as average family pays $12,000
National Post
Canadians may like to believe they have access to free health care, but a new report squashes those illusions. An average Canadian family pays $12,000 per year for health care insurance and those costs have nearly doubled in the last decade, according to a Fraser Institute report. "Contrary to the way we find (health care insurance) is characterized, it isn’t free," Bacchus Barua, co-author of the study said.

New Brunswick health minister pushes federal parties to change health transfer formula
Global News
The New Brunswick government is worried that none of the federal parties is considering making a change that could be critical to the future of Atlantic Canada's health care system. The Canada Health Transfer Payments are handed out on a per capita basis, which means provinces with aging populations could be in trouble. "It is going to get worse before it gets better right because as we said, that baby boom bubble still hasn't reached its peak yet," said N.B. Health Minister Victor Boudreau.

Les gens vivent plus vieux, mais aussi plus malades
Radio-Canada
Les humains vivent de plus en plus vieux, même dans la plupart des pays pauvres, mais ils vivent aussi de plus en plus longtemps avec des problèmes de santé. Une analyse en profondeur des données entourant 306 maladies et blessures dans 188 pays, publiée par le journal médical The Lancet, démontre ainsi que l'espérance de vie globale a augmenté de plus de six ans depuis 1990, mais que la croissance de l'espérance de vie en santé a été freinée par des problèmes comme la maladie cardiaque ischémique, les infections respiratoires et les accidents vasculaires cérébraux.
