Island Savings

Visitors to Canada

This travel insurance is for you if:

  • you are visiting family in Canada or need medical coverage as a Super Visa holder.
  • you are a returning Canadian with a waiting period for medical coverage
  • you want the flexibility to return to your home country or visit other countries
    and maintain your coverage.


Do you have family coming to Canada that require medical insurance for their visa or simply want the peace of mind that comes from being covered for medical emergencies during their stay? This policy provides coverage to fit the needs of any non-resident visitors to Canada. Did you know if you were to become sick or injured while visiting Canada, you can expect to pay around $3000 per day for a daily ward and up to $10,000 or more for intensive care?
