Emergency Medical Services and Hospitals

When in need of medical assistance, head to the emergency services area of a hospital center which will offer diagnostic services and both general and specialized medical care. You may also go to a local community services center, called a CLSC, from which you will also receive first-rate health care and social services.

Health Insurance

Before you leave it is important to purchase an insurance policy that will cover any hospital or other medical expenses that you might incur while you are visiting. When you present yourself to receive care or medication you must pay for it right away. A receipt will be given to you and you should in turn send it to your insurance company for a refund.
