Frequently asked questions

Can international students buy medical insurance in their home country?

 Info for international students:

If you wish, you may purchase your own medical insurance to cover you for your first three months in BC, but after three months you MUST enroll with the government insurance plan. It is also helpful to note that medical care in Canada is very expensive and so if you do choose to purchase your own insurance for your first three months, it must provide adequate coverage.
