Provincial Health Coverage (Manitoba Health): The Manitoba Government has recently eliminated Provincial Health Coverage for international students studying in Manitoba beginning September 1, 2018. The University is currently working with other post-secondary institutions in Manitoba to determine alternative coverage options.

If you are beginning your studies during the Spring/Summer 2018 term, you may be eligible for Manitoba Health coverage during the Spring/Summer 2018 term. Please contact the Province of Manitoba directly by phone 204-786-7101 or toll free at 1-800-392-1207 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this time, we are recommending that you purchase health insurance in your home country that will provide coverage to September 1, 2018.
