Doug Ford recently announced the most significant cuts to Ontario’s healthcare system in over fifty years. Amid massive backlash, he has now reversed some of the proposed changes, but we aren’t out of the water yet, as some cuts are still set to move forward. Only time will tell how these changes will affect our system.
In the meantime, the current state of our healthcare system continues to be inadequate. Long wait times at doctor’s offices, hospitals, and other medical offices, as well as a lack of qualified doctors and nurses, are only some of the troubles we are currently facing.
How this affects employers
When someone gets sick, and the healthcare system is not as good as it could be, the loss of revenue for many organizations can be huge. According to a Statistics Canada report, work absences in 2017 cost the economy billions of dollars in revenue.
