Who's Covered?

Attention! International students living outside of Canada

Eligible international students are automatically covered by and billed for applicable portions of the student Plan. Note that Plan benefits are only accessible within Canada. Due to the impact of travel restrictions related to COVID-19, options for international students have been expanded for the 2020-21 academic year so that you can make the best choice for your individual circumstances. Be sure to read this FAQ to review your options, and see www.studentcare.ca for complete details on your Plan’s benefits.
