System Performance

Interpretation Note

Wait times have been impacted by reduced service delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the Chief Medical Officer of Health’s Directive #2 and Memorandum, from March 19 to May 26, 2020, health service providers and health service organizations including hospitals were directed to reduce elective surgeries and other non-emergency clinical activities to preserve capacity during the pandemic. To learn more about the impact on surgery and diagnostic imaging volumes, please click here.
