You worked hard and saved for that much-needed vacation. Don’t let an unexpected injury or sudden illness ruin it.
Whether travelling the world or cross-border shopping is in your future, or you will be visiting family or friends in another province, your full Ontario healthcare plan will not travel with you.
That means that, if you experience a medical emergency while outside Ontario, you will be responsible to arrange for your own care and pay for it, unless you have put in place a pre-arranged travel insurance plan.
All travel insurance is not created equally, so read the fine print carefully, or consult with your Advisor. There are different plans to suit the needs of Canadian Residents, Seniors, Visitors to Canada, and Students. There are also specialty plans for Canadians who will be living abroad or in the U.S. for in excess of 6 months.
