Because the pandemic exacerbates Canada’s surgical procedure backlogs, some sufferers are taking their well being into their very own arms, touring hundreds of kilometres and paying massive bucks for medical procedures.
It is easy to see why: in 2021, Canadians confronted a median wait time of simply over 25 weeks between referral and receiving therapy. That is the longest wait time ever recorded by the Fraser Institute, and a 175 per cent enhance from 1993, when the common wait was simply 9 weeks.
Jamie Mauracher appears at how some Canadians bypassed the lengthy waits, and why they are saying their well being system is failing them.

im contemplating this option, maybe not for surgeries but for things like dermatology, ive lost my dermatologist twice, once cuz she decided to move and the second one cuz she passed away, after the first time i had to wait forever to get another one, and this time my family doctor didnt want to refer me to another one as apparently there is a bunch of people waiting to see one to deal with skin cancer..so i am left with my doctors advice, which its good but she isnt as good as a trained dermatologist would be, everybody knows if there are private clinics in canada? im guessing they must be real expensive if some are choosing to go abroad
American want universal wait for it care?
People did that before this, socialized medicine is not quality medicine…. Never was.
"… repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Matthew 3:1-2) God demands repentance from everyone, for "there is no righteous man on earth who does good and does not sin" (Eccl. 7:20)…"
“None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good,
not even one.”(Rom. 3:10-12).
"And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the days of the Son of Man: they
ate, drank, married, married, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed everyone.
Just as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, drank, bought, sold, planted, built; but on the day that Lot left Sodom, a rain of fire and brimstone fell from heaven and destroyed everyone; so it will be on the day when the Son of Man appears. On that day, whoever is on the roof, and his things are in the house, do not go down to take them; and whoever is in the field, also do not turn back. Remember Lotova's wife.
Whoever saves his soul will destroy it; and whoever destroys it will revive it.
I tell you: that night there will be two on the same bed: one will take, and the other will remain; two will grind together: one will take, and the other will remain; two will be in the field: one will take, and the other will remain."
"Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour at which the Son of Man will come."
10 And he said to me, Seal not the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is at hand.
11 Let the unrighteous still do unrighteousness; let the unclean still be defiled; let the righteous still do righteousness, and let the holy one be sanctified still.
12 Behold, I am coming soon, and my retribution is with me, to reward everyone according to his deeds.
13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the First and the Last.
14 Blessed are those who keep his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life and enter the city through the gates.
15 But outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and adulterers, and murderers, and idolaters, and everyone who loves and does unrighteousness.
16 I, Jesus, have sent my angel to witness these things to you in the churches. I am the root and descendant of David, the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come! And let him who hears say: Come! Let him who is thirsty come, and let him who is willing take the water of life for free.
18 And I also testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds anything to them, God will put on him the plagues that are written in this book;
19 And if anyone takes away anything from the words of this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his participation in the book of life, and in the holy city, and in what is written in this book.
20 He who bears witness to this says, "To her, I am coming soon!" Amen. To her, come, Lord Jesus!
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with you all. Amen."
(Revelation of John the Theologian, 22:10-21)
"If we say that we have no sin— we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." (1 John 1:8)
"Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out" (Acts 3:19)
The problem is there is no competition here so naturally it's all f……. up.
Too bad the passport offices are backlogged so bad that it costs you double what a regular passport costs just to rush it. Government extorting its people because of it's failures. What a freakin joke…
Many 1000's of Canadians go across the border to the US for medical treatment. Friends in W Ontario go to Minnesota or to Florida
It's all well and good when someone has thousands of dollars to pay for medical procedures overseas. Preventative care does not exist in this country and "doctors" here seem to think that humans are the same as single-celled amoebas and therefore can only focus on one symptom at a time, instead of the whole biological system with interdependent and interrelated parts. When a patient is better at researching and diagnosing their illness than their doctor, there is a serious problem.
A healthy population is a happy and productive (tax-paying) one. So, why don't insurance companies and provincial health care bodies have MOUs with other countries to allow individuals to receive treatment elsewhere? It's almost as though they want diseases to fester until they become chronic, at which point the only choices are to be on expensive, addictive life-long drugs with numerous side effects, or surgery. With regards to surgery, you go in praying that doctors operate on the right limb and don't leave you with post-surgery infections.
Cancer surgery wait times are criminal. The Canadian Health Care system is murdering people. Shameful.
Good thing blackface keeps sending money to Ukraine to fund Neo "yahtzees" don't need it here right?
Best news channel, keep up the good work. SjF
Why are we paying taxes? Seriously?!?! This government has been throwing money everywhere but where it's actually needed for the last 6 years.
Medical tourism? 🤡
Justinflation and Justincompetence
Medical malpractice ends more people in Canada than covid-19, an "approval" from health Canada means nothing, so on and so forth…
blaming covid for medical policy is like blaming the gun when a kidnapper takes a hostage and makes demands.
Canadian health care is great, when you get it. There needs to be more private clinics available to those Canadians who CAN afford it, or who value the quality of life they gain by paying for it. Instead we get a "You don't want to be like Americans" fear mongering.
Because the Supreme court of Canada made private surgeries illegal, smack dab in the middle of the pandemic.
We live in a Third World country
We have been in the medical tourism industry since 2004 bringing patients from Canada, US, UK, Australia and US to over 20 destinations. Even during COVID through our medical brand (Taqtik Health) we have been very busy with medical second opinions as well (with travel restrictions lifted) seeing a lot more on-site surgeries. We work with some of the largest private hospital groups in the world. All top surgeons and specialists, afforable prices, full services, post-care support, and care. You wouldn't think it would be necessary in a first-world country like Canada, but Canada lags way behind even some developing countries. As far as specialists per capita, Canada is #72 (World data bank) with surgeons per capita at 24.3 per 10k patients, in comparison to Cuba at #1 with at nearly triple the amount of surgical specialists at 84.20 per 10k.
Why do people book their online and onsite surgery through companies like ours. Canada is only #62 globally for surgeon capability per 10k patients, lagging El salvador at #57 and Cuba at #1 (worldbank). The issue is complete lack of price transparency, high labour costs, and excessive third party fees and consulting. This all adds to excessive wait times, and increasing costs. Canadians deserve more options available.
Canada's healthcare just makes you suffer and wait way way to long for anything. It's ridiculous!!
Worst health care in the world
Thank you trudeau!!!!
How dare people prevent freedumb lovers from adding to their obesity by greedily munching on the burger inside the omicron infested restaurants instead of doing take out that does not harm economically but just saves the lives of people who are unnecessarily getting infected, or preventing a life of disability for young healthy people who could have been doctors but are now going to be taking your taxes from ODSP for life because of long covid. That greasy burger is totally worth it. These people then say they support Ukraine. You wouldn't last one day in war if you can't even go a while of your pathetic useless lives without greedily stuffing burgers into your hungry obese pies specifically within the restaurant instead of outside. Wear a mask, use the weather, open the window, when it is cold don't go indoor too much if you do wear KN95 mask and spend less than a few hours. It is not that tough to do this for a few years until there are cures for long covid. The cost benefit analysis is so easy to see. When the brain and heart damage kills you in 10 years from long covid and it is too late you will realize this, that is if your obesity doesn't take you before then, you wastes of oxygen.
Advice, book 2years in advance, the waiting list is long.
There's a reason they medical logo has two snakes on it .
Canada had the worst rated hospitals in the world Before convid.
Just spent 2 months in a major BC hospitals, the treatment was abysmal . The place was filthy , and the staff grisly.
Don't dare complain or they put a little dot on your file , "aggressive patient" .
Then they completely ignore you.
Veterinarian's offer better treatment to animals .
Just like the gov, the whole system is a joke.
Just last year the Supreme Court of Canada made private surgical in Canada Illegal . Those private surgeons were the best in the country.
There is no "care" in Healthcare.
Schwabbies taken over Canadian Health "Care" .
They just want the useless eaters gone.
If you are going to be a medical tourist, (you plan to pay to have surgery abroad) you have to make sure that you have the right kind of health and travel insurance. You can't assume that regular travel health insurance will cover you if you have surgery, especially if something goes wrong because of the surgery.
Go to South Korea. I got my knee surgery done, they have advanced technology and fast. Cost me $6,000 which would have been $15,000 here
I was under the impression that Canada has some of the best healthcare in the world…
