With a population of a little over 35 million, this North American destination is the 11th largest economy by nominal GDP and one of the wealthiest nations in the world. Its healthcare system is public funded but mainly provided by private enterprises, and it does not include coverage of prescription medications. The private healthcare industry also complements anything that is not
covered by the public healthcare system. The destination is heavily dependent on the service industry, which employs approximately 75% of its working population, leaving the oil industry, mixed in the remaining 25%. Being one of two destinations in the world that share a border with the United States, there is an opportunity to bring potential incremental business from the south to take advantage of its medical tourism industry and its medical facilities.
Canada scores high in the main factors that drive medical tourism. The destination was ranked 1st out of 41 for destination environment, because it is a wealthy, democratic and developed nation with a solid government that does not allow corruption. Surprisingly, it also scores high on the medical tourism factor, boosted by its top ranked healthcare costs. This means that Canada’s private healthcare system is extremely competitive when it comes to pricing its services for medical, surgical or dental interventions, taking advantage of the existing infrastructure and its capacity. In the end, this gives them enough power to attract and market its medical tourism industry to the world. Also, the quality of its facilities and its staff expertise gets them ranked 4th, which sends the northern nation to the top of the medical tourism index.
