International students who wish to take education in Canada must be insured for medical emergencies; thus, they must have health insurance.
Different provinces have different provisions for the coverage of international students under provincial programs. In provinces where there is no coverage for international students under the provincial health coverage programs, they have to purchase private health emergency insurance
The cost of treatment of health emergencies is too expensive; thus, it is highly recommended for international students to ensure that they have provincial or private health coverage.
The International Student Policies are very comprehensive, covering up to $2,000,000.
These policies cover stable preexisting health conditions.*
