Why buy Visitors to Canada travel insurance?

When visiting Canada, your country of origin’s health care plans might not travel with you. We know that health care costs in Canada can be expensive if you’re not covered under a Canadian government health insurance plan. So, be sure to carry travel insurance to safeguard your finances and enjoy a worry-free stay.

But if an unexpected medical emergency should happen, know that you’re protected with Visitors to Canada travel insurance.
