Wow, hey Hazer, you're back. Hope yourself and Gypsy are well.
I'm not sure about Canada, nebuliser wise my Ineb can use different types of plugs I think. I think it would depend on the nebuliser to how well it works in other countries, best thing to do would be to contact the nebuliser manufacturer to see what their recommendations are, also you can get travel adapters quite cheap, we had one for Spain last year and it worked fine. Not sure about health care wise, I think they do have a sort of NHS over there, which would possibly mean it's free for everyone who visits the country too, but I'm not sure. I would certainly look into specialist travel insurance that covers CF problems. It's usually quite a bit more expensive, but it's cheaper than medical bills.

Hope you enjoy your holiday and find a way round the problems, without it costing too much.
All the best
