An important update from Acadia’s Emergency Medical Travel provider, SSQ Insurance: COVID-19 travel insurance has expanded since the last update from July 22, 2020 to include out of country travel.  As of October 1, 2020, SSQ Insurance will be covering all emergency medical expenses resulting from COVID-19 for those travelling outside of Canada.

As per the COVID-19 Work from Home Guidelines Human Resources staff are currently working remotely to provide service and carry out regular duties from home. As such, we cannot accept hand deliveries or hard copies of paperwork at the Human Resources office or through the university post office. Please email or upload documents to OneDrive for staff to access as required. All HR staff are available via email or Microsoft Teams if you have questions or concerns. Please click here for staff contact information and we hope everyone stays well during this unprecedented time.

As travel restrictions within Canada and in other countries continue to change and adapt to the evolution of COVID-19 responses, so too have the coverages available under Acadia University’s emergency travel health plan provided by SSQ Insurance.
