Alberta Wait Times Reporting Website

Welcome to the Alberta Wait Times Reporting website. Albertans interested in treatment options can view wait time information on medical procedures and diagnostic tests and then discuss their treatment options with their health-care provider.

A Wait Time is the time between when a patient and [specialist] decide that a procedure or diagnostic test is required and the date the procedure or test is performed.
