International students, it is your responsibility to make sure you have medical insurance coverage while in Canada.
You MUST have medical insurance while studying at BCIT, or you will not be eligible for services from BCIT. A standard visit to an emergency room at a British Columbia (BC) hospital costs CAD $750, or more. Students are required to purchase private medical coverage provided by Guard.me. BCIT does not accept insurance from companies outside of Canada.
