"The quality of medical facilities and medical care in Canada are excellent. Canadians have access to world-class medical facilities, quality medical professionals and care, and access to the latest treatments and technologies used to diagnose and treat illnesses. Furthermore, people living in Canada are offered a wide range of health care services from a variety of health care practitioners, ranging from family doctors to specialists. This ensures that Canadians have access to the medical care they need to stay healthy and support their quality of life," explained one expat living in Canada.
"Public healthcare in Canada is only available to permanent residents. If you are not a permanent resident, you will need to obtain private health insurance. There are a number of well respected hospitals in Quebec City: L'Hotel-Dieu de Quebec et CRCEO in Old Quebec is a teaching hospital affiliated with University Laval's medical school (oncology, nephrology), CHUL et Centre mere-enfant Soleil (mother-child institute) is in Ste-Foy, Hopital de l'Enfant-Jesus (trauma care, burn care, blood disease and neuroscience), Hopital du Saint-Sacrement (ophthalmology, breast cancer) and Hopital Saint-Francois d'Assise (vascular diseases, obstetrics). ," said another expat in Quebec City, Canada.
