Most of the Canadian Provinces have seen rises in Life Expectancy because of medical advances in treating diseases such as Heart Disease and Cancer Newfoundland and Labrador is a notable exception as the province saw a decline in life expectancy. Although, in Nunavut large increases in life expectancy were seen due to increased rural health care
