Every year we hear of tales of bad border experiences because of over staying in the U.S.

This is a refresher of the 180 day rule.

A lot of them are over simplified and that gets a lot of Canadians in trouble.

180 Day Rule... What is it?

We will be venturing that way after I retire next year but we don't plan on pushing it. Summer south of 35 degrees is too dang hot for us anyway.

Who would want to stay in the US of a summer when Canada has such nice weather.

One thing most Cdns miss is the length of time their health plan allows them to be out of province. Their either 6 or 7 months.MOST forget that includes travel in Canada.For example you can not live in BC,take 180 days in US Then stay in your Alberta cabin .Most Provinces even like to know when and for how long you will be gone.

Now that's the kind of thing we don't want in the USA!

Wait, it is coming our way!

Ya good luck on that one,what they may want(doubtfull)and what they get may not be the same.I will check that out and get back to you.Saskatchewan says 6 months temporarily absent for education,business,employment,but does not state that it is consecutive or not.Who knows what applies and how.

Out of Province also includes travel to other Provinces and not just outside of the country. You have to be present, IN THE PROVINCE, for a minimum amount of time to maintain your coverage. I believe this period of time varies from Province to Province.

Provincial Medical is another topic, but in British Columbia you must be in province for six months in a calendar year (January-December)

So that does include travel within Canada if you are a snowbird and travel south for six months.

Does not leave much time for travel in Canada, but then how do they track if you are in your home province or not??????
