CRITICAL NOTICE RE: TRAVEL/HEALTH INSURANCE:
Is your IEC about to expire? Are you going on implied status or switching to visitor status? Your provincial health care will likely expire—you must confirm this. BOOK PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE to cover you until your bridge permit or PR comes in. Anything can happen and you could be left with a hospital bill in the hundreds of thousands. There are companies that will insure you if your IEC insurer will not extend. Cases are assessed on a case by case basis but keep trying until you find a company that will cover you. Try: Cigna, Best Quote, True Traveler, World Nomads. Ask your friends who they use. DO NOT STAY HERE UNINSURED—IT IS NOT WORTH THE RISK.
