The public health care system is designed to ensure all Canadian residents have reasonable access to health and dental care. Canada doesn’t have a single national plan, but 13 separate provincial and territorial health care insurance plans.

Provincial and territorial plans pay for your basic healthcare and dental services and needs, and what’s covered will vary depending on where you live. Generally speaking, these plans will cover things such as visits to the hospital or doctor, but may not cover other healthcare or paramedical services.

You may have coverage through your provincial or territorial health and dental plans, but they’re tailored to meet the average needs of Canadians. You might also have coverage through your workplace benefits.

If you don’t have coverage through your workplace benefits, you can tailor personal health and dental insurance to you and your family’s lifestyle to make sure you have the coverage you need.

Workplace benefits

Many employers in Canada offer workplace benefits that can be extended to cover your spouse and dependants. The coverage available will vary depending on employer or workplace, but most plans will cover costs such as health, dental, vision and prescription drugs.
