There are tremendous discrepancies in access to sleep care in Canada, reports The Globe and Mail.

“In Ontario, we are very well endowed with sleep laboratories and sleep physicians, because the government pays for the sleep studies and pays for the [procedure] to treat sleep apnea, for example.”

But if you’re in British Columbia, for instance, Dr. Bradley said, “you may wait anywhere from one to two years just to get a sleep study done, and another one to two years to get on treatment, because the government only funds very few sleep laboratories in British Columbia.”
