Visitors to Canada Emergency Medical Insurance

Canada has a great healthcare system, but if you’re not a resident, you won’t be covered—and medical costs are expensive. That’s why the Canadian government recommends all visitors buy a minimum of $100,000 in travel insurance coverage before arriving in Canada.
