Some parts of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland do not have ER services at all due to staff shortages post-covid. The wait to get assigned to a primary care doctor is also over two years. It’s incredibly, scary level tough in Canada right now. Not defending our system over theirs (at all), but healthcare is on the brink of collapse in many places.

It’s not much better here. I have healthcare through Partners and I’m basically giving up on getting a PCP even though I’ve got some things I need checked out.
