In April, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) released Access to Palliative Care in Canada, 2023 with updated information on Canadians’ access to palliative care. Since their first report on palliative care in Canada 5 years ago, they have modernized and expanded their data collection, with a focus on expanding home care data and improving data standards.
Data in the 2023 report is from Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia and the Yukon; data in the 2018 report is from Ontario and Alberta. These jurisdictions are used as a proxy for all of Canada.
