And prescriptions, which aren't subsidised like they are with the NHS, and ambulances etc. Best thing to do if you have further questions about how healthcare works in Canada is to ask in the main Canada forums where you'll get loads of good advice, but essentially it's half way between the UK (everything provided by NHS) and the US (insurance essential for everything).

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

Re: Alberta vs Saskatchewan vs Manitoba
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.
