apply for insurance | New Students

As a NU student in the Province of British Columbia, you are required to purchase the guard.me plan for the first 90 days of your studies, unless you can provide proof of suitable comprehensive health insurance to NU. NU students in BC are eligible to apply for the provincial government’s health insurance plan (BC-MSP) upon arrival. If you apply immediately, you should receive written confirmation of coverage before the end of your 90-day wait period. Once you have proof of coverage through the BC-MSP you are eligible to purchase the guard.me BC Plus Top-up plan.

NU students attending the Vancouver campus are encouraged to purchase the BC Plus Top-up plan. This plan provides supplemental coverage and special benefits that have been carefully designed and selected, all with the unique needs of international students in mind. This policy is not required in Ontario.
