Data Location

Comments

Canada as a federation has divisions of power, In Canada health is paid for via transfer payments from the Federal government but administered by the provinces and territories. The health data being requested in this category come from a number of sources, and some would have open licences and some would not.

Some data are free some are not.

The Public Health Agency of Canada disseminate some infections disease data via their health surveillance page http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/surveillance-eng.php

Statistics Canada also disseminates health data here - http://www.statcan.gc.ca/eng/health/index

A non-governmental organization, the Canadian Institute for Health Information, manages and disseminates provincial data supplied by the provinces and territories on the administration of the health case system.

The provinces and territories have the rest.
