The healthcare system in Canada is developed and a devolved sector. It is in general matured in Canada. But still there are factors that are affecting the overall healthcare system. There is shortage of paramedics particularly in the accidents and emergency medical care services department. Also, the waiting time and treatment charges are very gruelling. Thus, patients from Canada prefer to travel to other countries to get rescued from their health issues. This has been the case in the past as well, when only the affluent people of Canada could manage to get timely treatment in other countries.
But today India has emerged as one of the best and leading medical tourism hubs of the world. Thus, now not only patients from other countries, but patients from CANADA also can avail the various affordable treatments and have been visiting India to get treated. Tour2india4health - as the name suggests has always been ahead in fulfilling the needs of such patients and has become the most sought after healthcare service provider. Some of the major features that place us in a better position are:
Mark Twain rightly described India in the following lines, "India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only."
India is the 7th largest country in the world and stands apart from the remaining Asia, surrounded by mountains and the sea, which give the country a distinctive geographical beauty. India boasts of a different aspect of its beauty and personality to proffer to each of the travellers visiting the country. India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, and proudly homes a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. There have been many civilizations that rose and fell, some even vanished into oblivion but the spirit of India remains unconquerable. It has achieved all-round socio-economic progress over the years.
Bordered by Pakistan, Nepal, China and Bangladesh, India is South Asia's largest, sovereign, democratic republic, located in South Asia. Teeming with a billion plus people, India will astound you with its diversity; be it the snow-wrapped and serene peaks of the north, the sunny and peaceful beaches down south, to dense forests, gorgeous temples, and vibrant festivals to cities, which have grown to become the IT hubs of the country. It is full of wonderful historical places, heritage sites, and delightful tourism places in various Indian cities, which make India famous for travel and tourism all over the world. Referred to as the largest democracy in the world, it is one of the fastest growing economies. Further, owing to its powerful diversity, India makes an interesting tourist destination coupled with mouth watering cuisine that would certainly make people come back for more. Spiritually, India respects all belief systems and is a secular country where many religions were born and are living and flourishing together.
Located in the northern part of North America, Canada is the second largest country on this planet. It is bordered by three oceans - the Pacific Ocean in the west, the Atlantic Ocean in the east and the Arctic Ocean to the north. Canada has a varied range of landscapes - high mountains, prairie grasslands, different type of forests, arctic tundra where the ground is permanently frozen. Canada occupies much of the continent of North America, sharing land borders with the contiguous United States to the south, and the US state of Alaska to the northwest. Canada is geologically active, has had many earthquakes and still has some potentially active volcanoes, notably Mount Meager, Mount Garibaldi, Mount Cayley, and the Mount Edziza volcanic complex. Not only this, Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined. Last counted, there may be as many as two million, with 563 lakes larger than 100 square kilometres. Canada's largest include Lake Huron (Ontario), Great Bear Lake (Northwest Territories), and Lake Superior (Ontario), Lake Winnipeg, Canada's fifth and the world's 11th largest, is in Manitoba.
Canada's southern border with the United States is the world's longest bi-national land border. The majority of the country has a cold or severely cold winter climate, but southerly areas are warm in summer. Canada is sparsely populated, the majority of its land territory being dominated by forest and tundra and the Rocky Mountains. It is highly urbanized with 82 per cent of the 35.15 million people concentrated in large and medium-sized cities, many near the southern border. Its capital is Ottawa, and its largest metropolitan areas are Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Canada is a federal parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy, with Queen Elizabeth II being the head of state. The country is officially bilingual at the federal level. It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many other countries. Its progressive economy is the tenth-largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed international trade networks. Canada's long and complex relationship with the United States has had a significant impact on its economy and culture.
Canada is a well developed country and has the fifteenth-highest nominal per capita income globally as well as the tenth-highest ranking in the Human Development Index. It ranks among the highest in international measurements of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, and education. Canada is religiously diverse, encompassing a wide range of beliefs and customs; has no official church, and the government is officially committed to religious pluralism. Freedom of religion in Canada is a constitutionally protected right, allowing individuals to assemble and worship without limitation or interference. A multitude of languages are used by Canadians, with English and French (the official languages) being the mother tongues of approximately 60 percent and 20 percent of Canadians, respectively.
The healthcare sector is a developed one in Canada but surely not without problems. There is shortage of healthcare services in specific areas along with underfunding. Both public sector and private sector have their own issues and thus Canadians either have to deal with lengthy waiting periods or opt for other countries to get treated. Dealing with shortage of paramedic staff, long waiting periods, and most importantly the skyrocketing treatment costs, is very challenging here. The distribution of healthcare facilities is not proportionate as per social and economic classes. Also, the variation in quality and quantity of treatment and expenditure is not that good when compared to other countries. This makes many people from Canada opt for getting treated in other countries rather than in Canada.
With the medical tourism industry gaining fast-paced popularity, a large number of patients from Canada are finalizing India as their treatment destination. The main attractive facet that is drawing the attention of these patients is the availability of reasonably priced treatments and that too with zero waiting periods. This is majorly helping these patients in saving a lot of money compared to what they have to shell out in their own country. Majority of the treatments in India cost about as low as one tenth of what they cost in Canada. Also, what is most crucial is that these medical tourists from Canada are getting treated on time.
Today, India has truly proved herself as a very promising option as a medical tourism destination. Imagine a complex medical procedure being done by the most adept surgeons and at prices as low as one-tenth of what it costs in other leading nations. That's India! India has some of the best qualified professionals in each and every medical sphere, and this fact has now been identified and widely accepted by people around the globe. Right from quality of services, range of surgeries and treatment options, availability of cutting edge infrastructure and skilled manpower to perform any medical procedure, to zero waiting time - the list of advantages goes on. Some of the factors that are drawing the attention of medical tourists are:
As a medical tourism destination, India maintains not only a strong accreditation system, but also a large number of accredited facilities. So if you or your loved ones have been suggested a complex procedure or any other treatment, India would obviously be the best decision. India offers top notch medical facilities, at par with any of the leading nations, competitive prices for treatments along with patient friendly ambience, making India a very lucrative destination.
