The Government of Canada does not pay for the medical costs of foreign students. The medical expenses for emergency, sudden illness or accident while studying in Canada could cause a fortune without adequate coverage.
Students are responsible to obtain and maintain health insurance for the duration of their study and internship with RCIIS. We recommend that you arrange your health insurance prior to your arrival in Canada. Options include pre-registering in a provincial insurance coverage plan, compulsory enrolment in an university or college health plan, or through the purchase of health coverage for a private health insurance company. We can arrange to provide you with health insurance. The cost is $2.00 per day.
When you make application with us, please indicate this on your registration form. You may purchase your insurance in your country of origin through your local representative, please send us the copy of your insurance coverage for the time you decided to study with us.
