Emergency Medical

Canadian hospitals will not refuse treatment for those requiring care, regardless of financial status or healthcare coverage. To avoid incurring costs of an emergency healthcare visit, all visitors planning a trip to Canada should ensure they have adequate coverage from their home healthcare provider.

Health Insurance

Visitors to Canada should obtain travellers' health insurance before leaving home. Most health insurance coverage does not extend outside the country of residence. Visitors requiring prescription medication should bring a copy of the prescription for renewal in Canada.


Visitors from abroad may withdraw Canadian currency from automated teller machines (ATMs) or convert foreign currency at local banks.
