Canada Medical Tourism

Located in the North American continent, Canada is the second largest country in the world, in terms of land mass alone, spanning approximately 9.98 million square kilometers. With a population of around 35 million as per Census statistics from 2014, Canada has a global reputation of being one of the most welcoming and modern nations, making medical tourists seem invited on their visit to the country. 

As a frontier country, Canada has a completely publicly funded healthcare system. Healthcare is provided by private institutions as per governmental regulations stipulated in the Canada Health Act of 1984. The high quality of Canada’s healthcare system, compared with low healthcare costs relative to other first world nations, has helped it emerge as one of the global leaders in inbound medical tourism. Statistics indicate that the medical tourists are able to save anywhere between 30 to 60 percent of healthcare costs by opting for Canadian medical tourism initiatives over those provided in the United States.
