Canadians pay for healthcare through taxes instead of medical bills. The cost of Canada’s health care rose by 70% over the past 20 years. A typical family of four will pay $12,057 for health-care in 2017. Services are rationed, and the average wait time for treatment is 20 weeks. 63,000 Canadians left the country in 2016 to seek medical assistance elsewhere (usually in the US).
