Youth + Travel

One of the great aspects of working in travel medicine is working with youth. We have a number of youth visit our clinic regularly. Most recently we had a group from a local high school in preparation for their trip to India. It is really inspirational to see how excited and involved these young students are about their upcoming  adventure.

Benefits of travel for youth

  1. Builds Confidence
  2. Allows them to step out of their comfort zone
  3. Provides sensitivity to other Cultures
  4. Education in different languages
  5. Socialization with different types of people
As you can see the benefits are very impactful and can provide tools for youth that will last a lifetime.


Be sure to visit our clinic for a consultation prior to any trip or travel.

Happy Traveling!

Why you should Travel in the Winter

While we would say it is ALWAYS a great time to travel. Many prefer to travel during the Winter. Winter is always a busy time for travellers. Here are just a few reasons why.


Often traveling during the off-season, hotels, airlines and resorts will offer discounted rates. Be on the look-out for great deals during non-peak travel times!


Ever heard of SADS (seasonal affective disorder)? Many people suffer from this during the winter. It’s dark, cold and lacking sun. For this reason folks want to get away from snow and head to the beach!

Don’t let the cold weather discourage your desire to travel either, but rather, embrace it and look at it as a chance to see places in a different light. The world is full of opportunities for exploration. Maybe it isn’t exactly hot and sunny everywhere right now, but hey, cold weather traveling is actually really wonderful. With boundless activities for both winter enthusiasts and warm weather lovers alike, there is something out there for every traveler!


Spring, summer, autumn, winter. No matter the season, it’s always a good time to go out and see the world! Plan your next adventure!


Remember to pack lots of  sunscreen and insect repellant with DEET. Public Health Agency of Canada website Public Health Agency of Canada has the latest on mosquito borne diseases like ZIKA. check it out.
