The aim of this report is to assess the feasibility of using select Statistics Canada data holdings to inform two key issues from the patients’ perspective: 1) the relationships between private care, and patient use and access to services and 2) the extent of the role of the private sector in the delivery of care. Additionally, the report identifies data gaps and potential data collection options.
