The population in Canada is approximately 35 million. Interestingly enough, the Canadian government estimates that 35 million tourists visit Canada annually. That's one visitor to Canada for every person in the country!
When planning a trip to Canada, of course, the last thing anyone wants to think about is getting sick or injured. But when travelling, even the most minor injuries or illnesses can become a major expense-even in Canada. The fact is that Canada's well known health care system does not offer free medical care for visitors or tourists.
