Hospitals and Medical Services

Alberta hospitals will not refuse treatment to those requiring care, regardless of their financial status or health care coverage. However, to avoid incurring costs of an emergency healthcare visit, all visitors planning a trip to Canada should ensure they have adequate coverage from their home healthcare provider.

Health Insurance

Visitors to Canada should obtain travelers' health insurance before leaving home. Most health insurance coverage does not extend outside the country of residence. Visitors requiring prescription medication should bring a copy of the prescription for renewal in Canada.
