Refugee health survey by province and by category


This document provides some basic information about issues in access to health care across Canada for refugees, refugee claimants and others affected by the June 2012 cuts to the Interim Federal Health (IFH) Program, including with respect to:

  • Particular problems in access to health care.
  • Issues by immigration category or special situation.
  • Coverage by province.

The information is compiled based on input received from members of the Canadian Council for Refugees (CCR) and others providing services to refugees. In addition, provincial governments were asked to provide some basic information about access to health for refugees in their province, in the wake of the IFH cuts.
