Continuing Studies and LEAP Students

This is intended for students in a Continuing Studies program or LEAP only.

Upon arrival, you will need to apply for Medical Services Plan (MSP) as it is mandatory in the province of British Columbia (BC) for international students to have medical insurance. Since BC MSP does not begin until 3 months after your arrival, you will need to purchase private insurance for those first 3 months. Once your travel arrangements are made, buy the insurance to begin on your first day in BC, for 3 months. To begin, click on the “Apply for Insurance” icon below.

If you are in a Regular Studies program, please refer to the Returning Regular Studies Students or Early Arrivals pages to purchase your insurance or for more information. Do not purchase insurance from this page.
