Medical Insurance

Great news for International Students

Manitoba has extensive and modern health facilities that are accessible to all international students.

  • International students and their spouse and/or dependants may also be eligible for free medical insurance under Manitoba Health, provided that the student holds a valid study permit issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and that they and their family members reside in Manitoba for a minimum of 6 consecutive months.

  • Eligible students and their spouse and/or dependants are entitled to the same health care coverage as all Manitoba residents.

  • Supplemental medical insurance may be available from educational institutions in Manitoba to cover travel, vision, and dental health.  Check with the institution you wish to attend prior to purchasing insurance in your home country.
