ABSTRACT
The article examines the healthcare conditions in Canada. Healthcare in the country must be designed to keep people well, because it is cheaper that people are well-kept than to patch them up after they are sick. Based on need and not based on the ability to pay, designated services are made universally available to all citizens. Although it is a remarkable achievement, many people in the modern day characterize medicare not a health system, but one that treats sickness.
