Citizens are well protected financially and prepared for a medical emergency. However, if you are visiting Canada because of personal or professional reasons you have no such security. During your visit, if any medical emergency occurs then you have to bear all hospital and medical bills. This can put a huge financial burden as Canadian medical services are quite costly.
