Medical Coverage

In Canada all students must have medical coverage.

In the Saanich International School Program all students must be covered by medical from Sept 1 – June 30 or for the length of their program with us.

New students will be covered for the first three months by our short term medical provider – Guard Me. After the 3 month wait period, if the student comes with a study permit, then they will go onto Medical Services Plan of BC (MSP) for the remainder of their stay.  For information regarding coverage and forms please click on the following link which will take you directly to the Medical Services Plan of BC.   If a student does not have a study permit their Guard Me policy will be extended until the end of their stay.
