I got clocked speeding in an area of Montreal with an 18 mph speed limit (that I didn't know about). I got a ticket and was sent on my way. As a US citizen and resident, I have questions about what impact (if any) this ticket will have on my license, insurance, and--if I choose not to pay the ticket--my ability to return to Canada. (Note: I am not seriously considering ignoring the ticket, I'm just curious.) [more inside]

My girlfriend (who is from the US) is going to Canada to do a mural in a hotel and they require her to have 3rd party insurance/liability insurance. She is only going to be there for a week and she's only making $1000 for the project so she doesn't want to spend all her money on insurance. Do any of you know of a cheap and quick way to get temporarily insured in Canada? [more inside]

My friend's daughter was travelling to Canada over the weekend. Apparently she was stopped at the border due to some health insurance related issue.
She didn't make it to the hostel she was supposed to stay at the first night, or the volunteer program she was destined for.
She called those places when she knew she wouldn't make it, but she hasn't called home at all, as far as we can tell. And we have no idea where she is right now.
What can we do? [more inside]

My wife and I are moving to British Columbia on temporary work permits, from the US, and we'll be bringing in a car. However, we want to drive up through Alberta (Burgess Shale tourism!) on our way to Vancouver, and I'm concerned that this may cause major headaches with regard to insurance, registration, licenses, etc. Please help us avoid border crossing nightmares!

My aunt will be visiting Canada on a tourist visa from India and she would like to purchase health insurance for the duration of her visit. Can you recommend a company I can contact to get more information about this, preferably an insurance company we can buy a policy from? Google is giving me a lot of sketchy SEO results.

My 83-year-old mom is thinking of moving to BC to be near me, which I would love. She's a US citizen. (I'm a US citizen, too, but I'm a Permanent Resident of Canada) Does anyone know how my mother would deal with issues such as insurance and health care? I don't think she'll ever be eligible for health care in Canada, so she would have to have something to fall back on if/when she needs health care.
