“In 2003, 20% of Canadians aged 12 or older—5.4 million people—reported using some type of alternative or complementary health care. This estimate is based on data from the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), which included questions about consultations with “alternative health care providers” and chiropractors in the 12 months before the survey interview.”
