Visitors to Canada

Whether you’re on an extended stay in Canada or returning from an extended trip abroad, Canadian government health care plans might not be available to you right away or at all. Hospitals can charge thousands of dollars per day if you’re not covered under a Canadian government health insurance plan.

For situations such as these, Destination Travel offers a plan to help protect you and your family from unexpected costs due to a medical emergency – and make certain you get the care you need.

Plan Highlights

Ideal for

Temporary residents; Landed immigrants; Returning Canadians; Work permit holders; Super Visa applicants; Foreign expatriates

Important Notes

  • In the event of a medical emergency, you must notify Active Care Management (toll free 1-833-886-1069 or worldwide collect 1-519- 945-1069 ) before obtaining emergency treatment, so that we may:

– confirm coverage

– provide pre-approval of treatment.

  • If it is medically impossible for you to call prior to obtaining emergency treatment, we ask that someone calls on your behalf as soon as possible. Otherwise, if you do not call the Assistance Centre before you obtain emergency treatment, you will have to pay 20% of the eligible medical expenses we would normally pay under this insurance.
  • The insurer reserves the right, as reasonably required, to transfer you to any hospital or to transport you to your country of origin following an emergency. If you refuse to be transferred or transported when declared medically fit to travel, any continuing costs incurred after your refusal will not be covered and the payment of such costs becomes your sole responsibility. Coverage ceases upon your refusal and no coverage will be provided to you for the remainder of the period of coverage.
  • The Assistance Centre, the insurer, The Destination: Travel Group Inc. and its agents/brokers will not be responsible for the availability, quantity, quality, or results of any medical treatment received, or for failure to obtain medical service.
