Domestic Exchange


As a domestic exchange student within Canada (including students who are international students at their home institutions), you are expected to maintain primary medical insurance in your home province.

You are advised to inform your home province's medical plan that you will be studying out of province to ensure that your coverage will be sufficient for the duration of your studies at SFU (see list).

If you are an international student and are unable to maintain coverage through your home province, you may purchase the plan by enrolling directly online.


You will not receive a secondary medical insurance plan through SFU. Look into what outside-of-province coverage is provided by the plan you use in your home province. You may wish to purchase coverage through a private insurance agent.
