Increase in health expenditure for mental health in Canada 2010-2018, by territory

Mental health is an ongoing problem among Canadians. Over the last several years there has been an increase in the percentage of Canadians that perceived their mental health as fair or poor. Recent data suggests that there has also been a fairly substantial increase in public-sector spending for mental health as well. From 2009/2010 to 2017/2018 there was an 87 percent increase in public-sector expenditure on mental health on Prince Edward Island. Likewise, Newfoundland and Labrador had also seen significant increases in spending between those years.

Supplementary notes

The total MHA services expenditure for fiscal years 2009–2010 and 2017‒2018 was calculated using direct costs reported in the Canadian MIS Database.
Data is not available for Quebec and Nunavut in the Canadian MIS Database. Data is not available for community care in Yukon.
Physician compensation was excluded from the analysis and spending on MHA could be underestimated.
