The time series based on the data of health care expenditure per capita, GDP and life expectancy from year 1975 to 2012. This dissertation does empirical analysis on the short run and long run relationship between health care expenditure, GDP and life expectancy using cointegration and granger causality based on an error correction model and vector auto-regression model. The result shows that there is no cointegration and granger causal relationship between health care expenditure and GDP in Canada. The results also show that there is no short run relationship between health care expenditure and life expectancy however long run relation does exists. However, there is unidirectional granger causal of life expectancy on GDP but not cointegrated.
