A visitors to Canada insurance policy is designed to cover unexpected medical costs when a non-resident of Canada requires emergency medical care during their visit to Canada.

For visitors from certain countries intending to stay in Canada for an extended period (e.g. longer than 6 months), a super visa may be required. Having Visitors to Canada insurance is a requirement for a super visa.
