Your Government / Credit Card or Private health insurance plan may not cover all emergency / supplementary Travel / Medical expenses.

Various Travel Health / Medical insurance plans may not cover all emergency expenses or special care (air ambulance or emergency dental services, for instance) once you leave your home province and typically cover only a limited portion once you leave the country. In fact, the Canadian Government (Consular Services, Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada) urges all Canadians to purchase supplemental health insurance when leaving the country.

Government health insurance plans also do not (always) provide coverage for situations such as lost, damaged or delayed baggage or trip cancellation and interruption, and credit card coverage may be limited.

You may need coverage for a range of situations such as pre-existing conditions. Be sure to plan your Travel / Health insurance requirements carefully!
