Ottawa : Canadian institute for health information, 2005, p. 30. http://secure.cihi.ca/cihiweb/dispPage.jsp?cw_page=PG_376_E&cw_topic=376&cw_rel=AR_43_E#full (Retrieved July 18, 2005).

Governments spent an estimated $8.5 billion on prescription drugs in 2004, compared with the $9.5 billion paid by individuals and insurance companies. Retail spending on prescribed drugs, over-the-counter medication, and personal health supplies has more than doubled since 1996, to an estimated $21.8 billion in 2004. Since 1997, it has been the second-largest category of the health bill. In 2004, it accounted for 17% of the total, well above spending on physician services.

The bulk of retail spending ($18 billion, or 83%, in 2004) goes towards prescribed drugs. This cost is split 47% to 53% between the public and private sectors respectively. Private payers also spent an estimated $3.8 billion on over-the-counter drugs and personal health supplies, such as diabetes test strips. These numbers exclude what hospitals and other health care institutions spend on drugs for their patients.
