No vaccinations are required. As health care expenses are very high for foreign tourists, travellers are advised to take out insurance that will provide specific assistance guarantees (hospitalisation fees, etc.) from a reputable travel insurance firm.

If you need to travel with medication, enquire about customs formalities at the Canadian border control agency.
