Does Canada offer free long-term care?

Contrary to common belief, Canada's public healthcare system does not fully cover long-term care in nursing facilities. Provincial and territorial health plans may subsidize some medical and nursing care costs, but typically not the full expenses, especially room and board in care facilities. Individuals often bear a significant portion of these costs, highlighting the importance of planning for long-term care expenses.
