Health insurance

Immigration Quebec regulations require that all international students be covered by a health insurance plan that meets government standards, while studying in Quebec. In keeping with this government directive, Concordia University has negotiated a compulsory health and accident insurance plan with Blue Cross at a competitive cost that all Concordia international students must have. Consequently, personal health insurance plans are not accepted. Students may opt to take couple or family coverage at an additional cost.

Students can pick up a Health Insurance card at the ISO after they have registered for courses. Detailed information on the extent of the coverage is available and a print booklet will be given to students at the time their insurance card is issued by the ISO. Blue Cross also offers additional services

See the Health Insurance Information session schedule

We recommend that you pick up your card and carry it with you at all times.
