Travel Insurance - you must hold a Travel Insurance Policy for the entire duration of your working holiday in Canada  and may be asked to show proof of evidence at a Border entry into Canada. 'Work in Canada' can assist you with a Comprehensive Travel Insurance Policy

2 - Travel Insurance

It is recommended all travelers should take out a good quality Comprehensive Travel Insuranance Policy as medical costs in Canada can be very expensive, we all know accidents can happen and hopefully it won't happen to you! 

Travel Insurance is probably the least exciting thing you can think of when arranging your big Canadian adventure, but sometimes things don't always go as planned. That's why its worth having a look at the Insurance below.  Your insurance should cover things like travel, lost luggage, theft, health card, dental, hospitalisation and repatriation, and Ski/Snowboarding activities (winter) - the smallest incident can end up costing you a lot of money.  You must maintain a Travel/Medical Insurance Policy for the lenght of time you are in Canada.

Your 1Cover Travel Insurance can also be renewed while you are overseas
