Do You Have Coverage While Outside The Province?
It is important to protect yourself with emergency travel insurance before you leave. Illness and accidents can interrupt your travel plans at any time. If you’re injured or become ill while traveling away from home, you are responsible to pay for the emergency healthcare services not covered by your government health care plan.
The fact is that Canadian government healthcare plans only cover you for specific health expenses in your home province or territory. Their funding for expenses out-of-province or out-of-country medical treatments is very limited.
Canadian government healthcare plans strongly advise the purchase of supplemental healthcare insurance whenever you travel outside of your home province or country. Even if it is just a cross-border shopping trip, you can put your finances and health at risk if you develop an illness or have an accident.
