Provincial/territorial wait times initiatives and reporting

The primary responsibility for the administration and delivery of health care in Canada rests with provincial and territorial governments. Provincial and territorial efforts to reduce acute care wait times in accordance with the priorities of their individual systems include training and hiring more health professionals, clearing backlogs of patients requiring treatment, building capacity for regional centres of excellence, expanding ambulatory and community care programs and developing and implementing tools to better manage wait times. All provinces are now posting wait times information electronically. For more information on provincial and territorial initiatives to reduce or improve wait times management, please visit the following provincial/territorial websites:
