International Comparisons at CIHI

CIHI has an extensive program of work that meets the rising interest in comparing the performance of Canada’s health systems with those in comparable peer countries so we can provide answers to questions such as

  • How does Canada fare in relation to international benchmarks and targets?
  • Which countries have the best results, and what can we learn from them?

Read on for a sample of what we’ve found!

Find out more about Canada’s health workforce

How do we ensure quality data?

One way that we ensure quality — and that we are a trusted source of data — is through collaboration with our data suppliers. In addition, we produce annual data quality reports to assess the contribution of each province and territory to 11 of our databases. These reports are shared with the deputy ministers of health and key jurisdictional representatives from across the country. This reference guide describes the indicators and methodology used in these reports.
