If you are planning to cross the border, you will want to pack more than just your passport. Canada's department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade strongly encourages travellers to purchase supplemental emergency medical travel insurance as well: "Do not rely on your provincial health plan to cover costs if you get sick or are injured while abroad. Out-of-country healthcare can be costly, and your health plan will cover only part of the bill at best. It is your responsibility to obtain supplementary travel insurance". Emergency medical travel insurance is a must-have for all travelling Canadians.

Before you leave, get emergency medical travel insurance and pack it alongside your other must-have documentation.
