Cost of illness: an online ressource for dealing with the financial consequences of a serious illness 

What would you do if you had a serious illness or accident and could not work for a while?

Despite the public health care system, dealing with a serious illness always has financial consequences. 

The "Costs of Illness" project has created a bilingual website to help people assess the financial impact of a critical illness and learn ways to protect themselves based on their situation.

31% of Quebec workers would not be able to meet their financial obligations if their pay was late, according to the Canadian Payroll Association. - Costs of Illness (2021). Home Page. https://costofillness.org/
