Healthcare in Canada is neither free nor cheap. If during your visit to Canada you get sick or injured, the Canadian government won’t pay for any hospitalization or emergency medical services for visitors. Also, if you don’t have proper medical insurance coverage, you will be liable to pay for any medical service out of your own pocket. To avoid putting yourself in such a situation, make sure to get travel medical insurance. It may cost only a fraction of the amount you could end up having to pay for emergency medical treatment.
