Visitors To Canada

Travel insurance for visitors to Canada

Planning on visiting Canada? If you aren’t a Canadian resident, you won’t be covered by Canadian provincial health plans. This means you could face significant out-of-pocket expenses if an unexpected illness or accident occurs.

We’ve got you covered

National Insurance Quotes provides convenient and affordable travel insurance for visitors to Canada. With Canada visitor insurance, you’ll be protected against the cost of unexpected medical emergencies. You can buy coverage before coming to Canada or after arriving, and it may also cover short trips outside of Canada.

Great protection for a range of situations

Our travel insurance for visitors to Canada is also a smart solution for:

  • people who are in Canada on a work visa
  • Canadians who are not eligible for benefits under a government health insurance plan
  • those who are awaiting government health insurance plan coverage

Meeting Super Visa insurance requirements

Whether you’re applying for your own Super Visa or for a Parent or Grandparent Super Visa, you must have proof that you have obtained private medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company. Purchase our Canada visitor insurance to meet Super Visa insurance requirements.
