Immigrants & Visitors to Canada – Medical Insurance

Whether you’re just visiting, or planning on making Canada your new home, GMS is here to help provide for your emergency medical needs while in the country.

The Annual Immigrants & Visitors to Canada Plan is perfect for Super Visa applicants, frequent visitors to Canada and visitors planning extended stays. It provides 365 days of uninterrupted coverage for emergency medical expenses in Canada. You can also return to your country of origin as many times as you like, without the need to re-apply for coverage when you come back to Canada.

Our simple, online application makes it easy for you to choose the coverage you need:

  • You choose the deductible; $0, $100, $500 or $1,000
  • You choose the amount of coverage; $25,000, $50,000, $100,000 or $150,000 in total coverage
  • You choose the length of time for which you are covered

No medical questions if you are under 55 years of age.

No waiting period if you apply before you arrive in Canada or are replacing an existing health plan issued by a Canadian insurer. Without existing health coverage, there is a 2 day (48 hour) waiting period if you apply within 30 days of your arrival in Canada, or a 7 day (168 hour) waiting period if you apply more than 30 days after your arrival in Canada.

When visiting Canada, coverage for side trips outside of Canada of up to 15 days each, are included with your Canadian travel medical emergency plan. Please see the policy wording for complete details.
