Hello all wasn't sure where to post this, is the Canon extended warranty plan worth it?

I think you need to state which country you are in. In many countries like the EU, UK and Australia for instance, strong statutory rights and consumer law offer more protection than many extended warranties do and are free by their very nature. While it can sometimes be hard to get retailers to live up to their legal responsibilities, the laws are there to protect the consumer. So in my opinion, in countries with such laws there is no need to pay more. However, that may not be true where you are based.

Canon already gives a 5 year warranty standard in Australia.
