What is visitors insurance?
Visitors Insurance is intended to cover emergency health and medical expenses, and financial and other losses incurred while you visiting Canada.
Why do I need Visitors Insurance?
When visiting Canada, your government health care plans may not travel with you. Health care costs in Canada are very expensive. Hospitals can charge thousands of dollars per day, with many Canadian hospitals charging a non-resident fee to patients not covered under a government health insurance plan. Visitors insurance helps protect you and your family from unexpected costs due to a medical emergency while you’re visiting Canada.
Who’s eligible to apply for Visitors to Canada insurance?
You can apply for this plan if you are:
  • A tourist, visitor to Canada, Super Visa applicants, Landed immigrants and returning Canadians waiting for Government Health Insurance Plan coverage looking for emergency-only coverage
  • Not insured or eligible for benefits under a Canadian government health insurance plan
What are my visitors coverage options?
You can choose between a maximum limit of $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, $100,000, $150,000, $300,000, $500,000 or $1,000,000.
