Good day,

Living in Canada, I've made use of university program finder websites
in the past to look for programs in my discipline. So when I saw your
question, I began by taking advantage of these sites.

The most useful Canadian program finder website I located was the
Directory of Canadian Universities. An advanced search enabled me to
locate Canadian health administration-related programs at graduate and
PhD levels only. Here's what I found:

Universities offering post-graduate diploma programs in health

University of Alberta
Concordia University
Université de Montréal

Masters Programs:

Athabasca University 
University of British Columbia
University of Victoria
Dalhousie University
McMaster University
University of Ottawa
University of Toronto
Université de Montréal
Université du Québec à Montréal 

PhD programs:

University of Calgary
University of Toronto

The degree titles vary from university to university -- for example,
"MA in policy and practice in health and social services
administration" versus
"MSc in health information science." Some are offered in combination
with Law, Nursing, and Business Administration degrees. To see the
various degree titles, you can refer to the search results at
<>. However, as this URL
seems to be a bit touchy, you may need to re-perform the search from
<>. Just search on "all programs," "all
institutions," "all provinces," "both languages" and select the fields
"graduate level certificate/diploma," "master's degree" and "PhD"
under "degree level." Then select "Health System/Health Services
Administration" under "field of study." Note that you can click on
each degree title in the results to learn more about the program,
including language of instruction and co-op opportunities.

At "Health Science Graduate Programs Outside USA"
<> you
can read short summaries of programs offered at Dalhousie University,
Concordia University, Université du Québec à Montréal, University of
Toronto, University of Alberta and University of Ottawa. The
descriptions include contact information and degree program

Similarly, at "Guide to Programs Offering a Master in Health
Administration" <>, you can read
short blurbs on programs offered by the University of Toronto,
University of Ottawa, University of Alberta, Dalhousie University and
Université de Montréal. These listings indicate whether the programs
are accredited by governing bodies in healthcare administration

Hi there!

In response to your questions:

The difference between diploma and Master's programs is simply one of
length. Diploma programs are generally one year, while Master's are

The University of Toronto's MSc in Health Administration program
