International students studying in Alberta must have adequate and active health insurance for the entire duration of their studies. It is necessary to register with the Alberta Health Care Commission immediately upon arrival, unless covered by another adequate health insurance plan. Many Alberta education institutions incorporate international health insurance into their fees.
International students who will be in Alberta for less than one year are not eligible for Alberta Health Care coverage. Students should budget approximately $100.00 - $150.00 per month for private medical insurance. There are many private insurance companies that you may purchase health coverage through, such as Ingle Insurance at www.ingleinternational.com
