Life Expectancy In Canada Varies So Much & You Could Live Years Longer In Some Spots

Narcity got in touch with Statistics Canada to find out which Canadian provinces have the longest life expectancy in Canada. While the most recent data (2019) doesn’t include P.E.I. or the three territories, it provides insight across the rest of the country.

The regions with the longest life expectancies were Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia, where the life expectancy at birth was 82.9 years and 82.4 years respectively in 2019.

Those living in Alberta can expect to live to be 81.6 years old, while residents of New Brunswick will age to 80.7 years.

Provinces with lower overall life expectancies include Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, where people live to be just over 80 on average. Newfoundland and Labrador has the lowest of all provinces included in the data, where the life expectancy is 80 years exactly.

If elected, he says the Liberals would move to criminalize blocking health care buildings.
