Canada health & safety
If you have any mishaps in Canada you’ll find the hospitals and clinics will provide an excellent standard of care. Make sure you get travel insurance before you go though, as hospital care for non-residents is expensive, and can range from $1,000 - $2,000 per day!
Hospital emergency rooms are open 24 hours for emergency care and most cities have walk-in clinics where non-emergency treatment or consultation is available without an appointment. Costs vary by clinic and medical attention required. For medical services, it's the same, dial 911.
No special immunisations or vaccinations are required to visit Canada.
Don’t leave home without it! Accidents happen – and they can happen in the strangest places at the strangest times, like on the side of a mountain while snowboarding or in an alley in Toronto at 3 am. Travel insurance can cover you for all sorts of mishaps during your travel, and even before you leave. Did you know up to 25% of all insurance claims are due to cancellation of travel?
