Manitoba Health Coverage

< Back to Health and Safety Policies

If you are a Canadian citizen or a Permanent Resident of Canada you must register with Manitoba Health. Health coverage will begin on the first day of the third month after your arrival in Manitoba. For example, if you arrive on August 30, August will count as the first month, with September and October as the following two. Therefore in this case, your coverage would begin November 1. When you register, you will need to:

  • Complete a Manitoba Health Registration Form
  • Provide your previous province’s/territory’s health card number
  • Provide proof of Canadian citizenship or Permanent Resident Confirmation Card

Until your health coverage begins you should maintain your coverage with your previous health plan or, in the case of international students, you will be signed up for one of the following StudentGuard Plus International Student Insurance Plans once your send a flight plan.
