Why take out a coverage while studying abroad?

While studying in Canada, you are not covered by the provincial health insurance plan. A medical consultation or a brief hospital stay can result in very high medical costs. What's more, the vast majority of higher education institutions require you to have medical insurance before the start of your studies.

Frequently Asked Questions

We've put together some frequently asked questions. Can't find the answer to your question? Don't hesitate to contact a member of our team.


Do I need insurance to study in Canada?

To study in Canada, in most provinces, you must have health and hospitalization insurance for the duration of your studies. That’s why most educational institutions require proof of insurance before the start of the semester.

Reference  :

What is a pre-existing health condition?

A pre-existing condition is an illness, injury or health problem that existed prior to the effective date of insurance, for which you may or may not have sought medical attention, or for which you have exhibited signs and symptoms.

When is the best time to take out a coverage?

Most insurers impose a minimum waiting period of 48 hours when the policy is taken out after arrival in Canada, or when a previous policy expires. Any illness occurring during this waiting period, as well as related expenses even if incurred once the waiting period is over, are not covered.

We recommend that you choose your insurance coverage before you arrive in Canada. That way, you’ll be able to anticipate any delays in activating your coverage.
