Having roadside assistance

Hi.
I bought a 2004 Mazda 3 with 130k km a few months ago here in Canada and don't know much about the mechanics and repairs.
From Saskatoon, I may need to drive 700-800 km to the Canadian Rockies + Edmonton/Calgary 2-3 times a year. So for my longer trips, I am just worried about any unexpected situation on the road.
Also, worried if the car doesn't start on harsh winter days, especially when I cannot plug it in during trip.

The car was well-maintained by a previous owner and is good so far, but just in case, it would be better to join any roadside assistance?
If without joining membership, who should I contact and how much would it be to have a service?
I found that a well-known tire shop, the Canadian Tires, has about CAD $70/year basic plan, so I may consider this.
After 10 days, I am leaving for Jasper for a week trip. So I am also considering changing the oil about 1000 km earlier than the expected schedule (previously, changed every 8000 km) and ask them to inspect other parts.
Is it a good idea?

Thanks.

Uhhhh... sounds like a no brainer to me.

I have it added to my vehicles for about $6 a year through my insurance
