Companies Paying For Testing

Companies Paying For Testing

WINNIPEG - If you've had to stand in a long line at a COVID-19 testing site, you won't be happy to hear that big business is able to pay for private testing that's sent to Ontario for analysis. This allows employees of these companies to avoid those big lineups.

Critics of this practice say it undermines and threatens Canada's universal health care, setting up a two-tiered system where if you can afford to pay for the test, you jump the queue.

Dynacare is adding new specimen collection sites to help shorten the long lines.
