Who needs Medical Insurance Coverage
Your government health plan may not cover all – or any – of your medical expenses when you are studying away from home. And while routine, basic medical services can add up quickly, emergency medical expenses can easily cost thousands of dollars.
Most post-secondary schools require that you have a medical insurance plan before classes begins. Any student applying for a Canadian Visa to study in Canada must show they’ve purchased private medical insurance that meets the Visa requirements.
