Why Travel Insurance for Students
If you’re studying outside Canada, or even outside your province, your government health insurance plan may not cover all of your medical costs. With our Travel Insurance, you can focus on your studies, not on your medical bills.
Studying outside Canada
“BON VOYAGE, BUT …”, published by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (page 18), states: “Do not rely on your provincial health plan to cover costs if you get sick or are injured while abroad. Out-of-country health care can be costly, and your health plan may not cover any medical expenses abroad.”
Studying outside your province
Even if you’re only studying in another Canadian province, government health plans have limits on the reimbursement of the emergency medical expenses while in another province. International students in Canada Non-Canadian residents are not covered by our government health insurance plans. They have even more reason to purchase private medical insurance in case they get sick or injured while studying in Canada.
