MB institutions announce health insurance for international students following provincial pull

August 7, 2018

The Government of Manitoba announced earlier this year that individuals with a study permit issued by the federal government will no longer be eligible for provincial health insurance coverage through Manitoba Health, Seniors and Active Living. In response, Booth University College has announced that it is introducing a new, mandatory international student health plan that will provide 12 months of coverage for international students. The University of Manitoba also announced a new international student health plan, and stated that for the 2018-2019 academic year, UManitoba will “cover the costs of health care insurance for all registered degree students to help with the transition.”  MB | BoothUC | UManitoba
