Insurance for International Students

Studying in Canada

Are you a an international student studying in Canada? From a campus flu outbreak to a dental emergency, anything can happen. Getting sick or injured away from the comforts of home can be especially stressful, so you’ll want to know you’re taken care. That’s where our travel insurance for students comes in.

Medical and dental treatments are expensive in Canada and international students often can’t get provincial healthcare. That means if you experience an emergency, you’ll be responsible to pay for any medical care costs while you’re here.
