Universal Health Care in Canada The health care system in Canada today is a combination of sources which depends on the services and the person being treated. 97% of Canadians are covered by Medicare which covers hospital and physician services. Medicare is funded at a governmental and provincial level. People of First Nation and Inuit descent are covered by the federal government. Members of the armed forces, veterans, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are also covered by the federal government.

As a Canadian, I am proud to say that my country provides public health care to its citizens. Canada provides health insurance plans that supply coverage to its entire people. Under the health care system, individual citizens are provided care and medical treatments from physicians as well as access to hospitals, dental care and additional medical services. Most citizens qualify for health coverage regardless of medical history, personal income, or standard of living. In this paper, I will argue that public healthcare is the better option because it provides individual right, equality, and a better lifespan.
