All registered full-time students are automatically enrolled in the International Student Insurance plan as of September 1st (September Start), as of January 1st (January Start) and as of May 1st (May start).
Note: You will have 30 days after the semester start date to make changes to the plan.
If you are moving to Canada with your family, you may choose the family plan at any time within 30 days of the effective date of insurance. This MUST be done within the 30 day period of the current semester. This can be done through www.wespeakstudent.com. Here you will also find information regarding costs associated with an addition of spouse or dependents.
Walk-in clinics are designed for individuals seeking medical care outside of emergency situations.
There are three walk-in clinics open between the hours of 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. within walking distance of the College, as well as a number of additional clinics located throughout the city. Appointments are not required at any walk-in clinic in the city, or throughout Canada.
The primacy Cambrian College walk-in clinic is located in the Royal Canadian Superstore (minutes from campus at 1485 LaSalle Blvd.). This location will accept international student insurance cards upfront and will not charge for doctor’s visit upfront.
In urgent situations, or for those that feel they need to see a doctor outside of walk-in clinic hours, the emergency department in Sudbury’s Hospital ( Health Sciences North ) is open 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
Those in situations that require immediate attention/support can dial 911 from any mobile phone or landline to receive on-site health care, fire, or police support anywhere in Canada.
