Students, staff and faculty participating in University of Manitoba travel are encouraged to use the following resources in case of emergency:
The University of Manitoba’s first point of contact in an international emergency, International SOS provides comprehensive medical and travel security assistance service. They are available 24/7, 365 days per year, and free to faculty, students, and staff. They can help you manage risks pre-departure and respond to medical or travel emergencies – such as hospitalization, natural disasters/conflict, or lost passports – while you are away. Note that you must also carry proof of your travel health insurance in order to receive medical assistance.
Students, staff and faculty travelling on university-related business are also encouraged to contact their local emergency number, a local program coordinator or administrative contact in case of an emergency. More information on local emergency numbers can be found on the International SOS website and app.

Lost or stolen passports/travel documents
If your passport is lost or stolen, contact your consulate or embassy immediately to report the disappearance and inquire about obtaining a replacement. In most cases, you will be required to file a police report. If you are an international student, you may also want to contact an international student advisor at the International Centre regarding the permits and visas that were in your passport when it was lost or stolen. If you would like guidance, book an appointment with an international student advisor by calling 204-474-8501 or dropping by 541 UMSU University Centre.
For emergencies in Canada, please call 911.
