Canada's Public Health Care Impacted by NAFTA

In Canada, public health insurance is subsidized by tax dollars. However, you also have access to your employer's health insurance if one is available.

However, NAFTA handed over management of BC Medical Services Plan to American interests who are mismanaging it. This means Canadians tax dollars are now falling into American hands, leading to hospital closures, long wait lines and other stuff.

Ultimately, Canada's public healthcare is being impacted by NAFTA and Canadian tax dollars are trickling into American hands because of it.

In BC, administration of health care is actually handled by Maximus which has been doing it since 2002.
