Health and social services

In Québec, we don’t have to pay directly for healthcare—it’s a public service financed in part by sales tax and income tax. Here are examples of the actual cost of some services:

  • One day of hospitalization for one person costs about $4,000.See note 1
  • An outpatient surgery costs about $4,500.See note 2
