In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately. This page provides information on PEI health care services. If you need non-emergency health information, dial 8-1-1, or 7-1-1 if you are hearing impaired. 

Canada has a universal healthcare system that is paid for through taxes. When you use public healthcare services, you must show your health insurance card to the hospital or medical clinic. Each province and territory has their own health insurance plan. Make sure you know what your plan covers. All provinces and territories will provide free emergency medical services, even if you don’t have a government health card. There may be restrictions depending on your immigration status.
