Canada faces huge diagnostic and surgical backlogs in its healthcare system across all provinces and territories, especially in emergency rooms and pediatric hospitals. Due to the global pandemic, around 700,000 surgeries and associated medical procedures have been delayed, increasing backlogs and waitlists.
Therefore, with a proposal of $200 billion for the next 10 years, the Canadian government strives to deliver faster access to healthcare facilities, reduce the backlog and support tens and thousands of additional surgeries.
As per the latest Budget 2023, an agreement has been drafted between the New Democratic Party (NDP) and the Liberal government to create a ‘National Dental Plan’ for all uninsured Canadians.
Funding of $13 billion has been proposed for over 5 years to implement the Canadian Dental Care Plan.
Earlier, Dental care was not covered under healthcare programs managed in provinces and was often out of reach for low-income groups. But according to the new plan, dental coverage will be provided to uninsured Canadians, including temporary and permanent residents.
