On average, Canadians across six provinces experienced a 37-minute wait time for walk-in clinics in 2022, new data from Medimap shows.

Medimap, a Canadian company that matches patients with walk-in clinics, reports that in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia, the average wait to see a physician increased 12 minutes from the year prior.

The Medimap Walk-in Wait Time Index gathers data from medical clinics, pharmacists, and health professionals allowing the wait times to be published online. According to the company about 70 per cent of the walk-in clinics across Canada use Medimap.

The company does not operate in Quebec, New Brunswick, P.E.I, Newfoundland and Labrador or any of the territories. The report only included cities from six provinces that had 10 or more clinics using Medimap’s software.
