Health coverage while travelling abroad during COVID-19

06 July 2020

As provinces and borders start to reopen, you may be thinking of travelling abroad in the coming months. If you rely on out-of-country health benefits coverage from Sun Life, the university's benefits provider, ensure you understand your coverage while travelling during COVID-19.

A medical emergency resulting from COVID-19 will be treated the same way as any other medical emergency outside of Canada and trip duration limits will continue to apply.

If border closures due to COVID-19 restrict travel home, your coverage may expire while you are still abroad. We recommend you check the COVID-19 Travel Information and the Government of Canada Travel Advisory website before deciding to leave Canada.
