Canada and Sweden’s healthcare systems have many similarities and there is a shared common vision to provide public funded comprehensive care to all residents. Canada however, out-spends most other countries (11.5% of GDP) in terms of healthcare investments. Canada shares the same challenges as Sweden with an aging population and increasing cost of healthcare. Many Swedish solutions are of interest since new technologies, services and products can increase efficiency and productivity, reduce labour-associated costs as well as admission rates of patients.
