Manulife Visitors to Canada and Supervisa Insurance Plan
Are you planning to visit Canada with family or friends from outside the country? Our government health insurance plans do not cover visitors who aren’t Canadian citizens. In the event of illness or accident in Canada, visitors may have to pay significant out-of-pocket medical expenses. You must provide proof from a Canadian insurance company that you have a minimum of $100,000 in private medical insurance to apply for a Super Visa. It is possible to fulfill this requirement with our Emergency Medical plan.
