Tbh you can do anything you're interested into before medschool. It's really up to you. Just make sure you complete the prerequisites! Personally, the only regret I have is not to do nursing instead of health sciences. I have a friend who did it and for Ottawa only your first year count in your GPA for your application since after that you have pass/fail classes. Also you get some clinical experience and you can kinda see if medecine is for you or not.

You'll find a lot of premeds in Biomedical science and health science at uOttawa. The health science program tends to have more group projects and essays while biomedical science has more 3hr labs and difficult prerequisite science courses. My advice is that whatever undergrad program you choose, prioritize your GPA. 

I wouldn't pursue a nursing program just to get clinical experience.  If you have no plans to become a nurse then don't go into the nursing program. Medical school will provide plenty of clinical experience for you.
