Do I need medical insurance
to travel within Canada?

Most travellers know the value of travel insurance for international travel. What they might not know is that it is just as necessary to have medical and non-medical coverage when travelling around Canada.

Whether you are going on a family holiday to the Canadian Rockies or enjoying a long weekend in Canada's capital city, your provincial health insurance plan may not cover costs associated with ground or air medical transportation, X-rays, emergency dental care and prescription drugs when you're outside of your province of residence.

In addition, travel insurance may also reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses if you have to cancel your trip due to a covered reason or when something goes off course during your vacation, such as your belongings being lost or damaged, disruptions arise during your trip, and more.
