Are you having difficulty navigating the healthcare system in Quebec? Do you sometimes feel lost in its complexity? Would you like to better understand its different entities?

Look no further… You’re in the right place! We hope that this article and the accompanying table will help answer any questions you may have on this topic.

First and foremost, know that you are not alone in having questions on this subject. Indeed, many of you have used our InfoDiabète service in recent months to inquire about the healthcare system in Quebec, to understand who does what, who makes decisions, with whose assistance, and so on.

As part of Diabète Québec’s mission to keep its members informed about topics that may interest and affect them, we believe it is important for them to understand how our healthcare system works.

For these reasons, with the help of a collaborator, we have created an explanatory table presenting the organization of the healthcare system as a whole. We encourage you to keep it for future reference and to share it.

Since the healthcare system is constantly evolving, Diabète Québec is committed to updating this evolving table when structural changes are made to the organization of the Ministry of Health and Social Services. Click on the image below to enlarge it and feel free to share the information.

Finally, we would like to thank our collaborators who helped us create this table which, we hope, will help you navigate the healthcare system in Quebec.
