The Wiki is well worth reading too, for example if you were looking at AB, this article may be useful - Health Care-Alberta : British Expat Wiki

HTH.

Thank you Christmsoompa for explaining that and for the link.
Interesting reading.
Yes, I need to visit the main forum if I need some non trucking questions answered.
It's good to know you don't need to pay for a major surgery if you need one, as apparently 1 in 2 of us will develop a cancer at some stage of our lives according to the latest research, so it's good to know you won"t have to sell your house and live in a tent to finance it.
