How to get a Government Health Card in Canada | Health Insurance Canada – Documents required.
In this video, I have covered important things that you need to know about the Health Care system in Canada and how to apply for a Health Card and the documents required.
In Canada, governments pay for many aspects of health care using money collected from taxes. This means that you do not pay for most services when you go to a doctor, clinic or hospital.
You will need a health insurance card to get health care in Canada. You must present this card each time you need medical services.
