Healthy Canadians – A Federal Report on Comparable Health Indicators 2008 published May 2009

“Health indicators help keep Canadians informed about the progress of renewing and strengthening health care in Canada. Health indicator reports provide information on health care across the country and allow governments and Canadians to compare data, track changes, see progress and identify areas for improvement within the health care system.

At the First Ministers’ Meeting in 2000, an agreement was made to develop a framework of health indicators that could be compared across fourteen jurisdictions in Canada. In 2003, health ministers signed the First Ministers’ Accord on Health Care Renewal, which stated each jurisdiction will report regularly on its health programs and services, health system performance, health outcomes and health status. This information is important for governments to make informed decisions about health care and share best practices across the jurisdictions.”
