Myth: Canadians don't have online access to their health information.
Fact: In 2019, most Canadians could access their personal health information electronically — a significant increase from 2015.
Provincial and regional portals are now available for all citizens in Quebec, Alberta and Saskatchewan as well as many in Ontario and British Columbia. Many Canadians in British Columbia and Ontario have also been accessing their lab results through lab service providers.
