When calling Canada from a foreign country, you must usually dial a code to “exit the country”, followed by 1 (Canada’s code), then the 10-digit Canadian number you wish to reach.
For example: When calling Canada from Mexico, you must dial 00 (or the + sign when using a mobile phone, which can be done by pressing number 0 for a little longer), followed by 1 and the 10-digit Canadian number you wish to reach.
So 00-1-888-820-6588 or +1-888-820-6588.
The codes to exit a country vary from one location to another. You are invited to search for your host country’s code on Internet if necessary.
If you are nevertheless unable to use our toll free number from your location, you may call a local operator and ask to make a collect call to Canada, using number 819-377-2241.
Should you fail to call Emergency Assistance immediately, your benefits may be limited. The Insurer reserves the right to reduce the reimbursement of services to 70% of eligible expenses, to a maximum of CAN $25,000 (this means that your original coverage amount of CAN $5,000,000 is reduced to $25,000. It is worth making a phone call!)
For any questions pursuant to the opening of your file, or if the situation in your destination country makes it impossible for you to call, you may contact the assistance team by email: email@example.com.
Last year, my wife fell and broke her wrist while on holiday in Arizona. You handled everything excellently from directing us to a high-quality hospital to handling all the paperwork. (…) I recommend you to all our friends and will continue to do so. Thank you. Your service is really appreciated.
