A System that Provides Healthcare for All

In New Brunswick, we have a health system that is unique and that it is managed by two health authorities: Vitalité and Horizon. The internal working language of Vitalité is French and that of Horizon is English, but when you go to either network , the services offered to the public are available in both official languages so you can receive care in the language of your choice.

The current wait time to be matched with a family doctor or nurse practitioner in New Brunswick is 1-3 years from the time a person adds their name to the provincially operated Patient Access NB registry.
