Guelph Mercury
According to the Canadian Institute for Health Information, patients in Alberta can wait from 87 days to up to 247 days compared with a 28- to 88-day wait in Saskatchewan.

Canada's health spending increase in 2014 smallest in 17 years
CTV News
The cost of health care in Canada will go up this year, but the increase is expected to be the smallest in the past 17 years, a new report suggests. The report on health-care spending in Canada estimates that total health expenditures will rise by only 2.1 per cent, or $61 more per person compared to last year's health costs. Spending on drugs has flattened out. And concerns about the cost of a greying population on the health system aren't currently driving costs up in a significant way, according to the report from the Canadian Institute for Health Information.

Toronto Star
All refugees in various stages of the asylum process can once again access basic Canadian health care, after the federal government reluctantly agreed to comply with a court-ordered reinstatement. The revised health program measures, which include medication for children and prenatal care, will be in effect only until Ottawa has exhausted legal avenues in the battle over whether its health-care program for refugee claimants is unconstitutional.
