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 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.
