This fact sheet explores how accessibility, availability and acceptability of health services impact the health and health outcomes of Indigenous peoples across Canada. Although Canada boasts a universal health care system that is widely considered to be among the best in the world, Indigenous peoples continue to experience barriers to accessing health care.
