AbstractThe economic burden of waterborne illness in Canada is estimated by combining data from a variety of sources. The cost is estimated at 2.7B$ in 2012 CDN$. However, the variability of the data, and the lack of data, both in general and particularly from Canada, introduces great uncertainty into the estimate. Efforts to increase data collection in Canada are recommended to improve the precision of the estimate.
