Injury and sickness can happen anytime, anywhere. Purchasing the proper insurance that is right for you can provide you with financial protection while you are away from home. The Government of Canada recommends that both visitors to Canada and traveling Canadians purchase adequate insurance coverage for their trip. This is because government health insurance plans will not provide enough emergency medical coverage for Canadians traveling outside of their province or territory of residence, and visitors to Canada are not covered under Canada’s universal health care system. One stay in a regular hospital room in Manitoba could cost you over $3000 a day, intensive care is over $10,000.
