Canada is likely to be an appealing destination for Brits looking to move abroad due to cultural similarities, the lack of a language barrier and breathtaking scenery.
However, moving to the country requires prior planning and one aspect potential expatriates will have to consider is an international healthcare insurance policy.
The foreign and Commonwealth Office states hospitals and healthcare facilities on offer in Canada are generally "very good", but expatriate health insurance is likely to be necessary as the cost of medical treatment can be "very expensive".
Alison Steed, writing for the Daily Telegraph, notes that taking out private healthcare is "wise" during the 90-day wait that applies in some provinces before expatriates can access the country's Medicare system, adding some services that are included in the cost of the NHS, such as ambulances, may carry additional costs in Canada that can be covered by private insurance.
Canada has dominated NatWest International Personal Banking's Quality of Life Index since it was launched five years ago, ranking first for the third time in 2012.
