Canadian Government Travel Advisory

Please be advised that the Government of Canada has now issued an Official Global Advisory advising Canadians to “avoid non-essential travel outside of Canada until further notice.”

Your travel insurance company may now treat this as equivalent to a Level 3 Travel advisory where all non-essential travel should be avoided. Therefore, your travel insurance coverage (emergency medical coverage and trip cancellation insurance) may be void after March 13th, 2020 if you decide to travel outside of the country. Because of this, we strongly advise against all travel until further notice.

· HealthLink BC
· Government of Canada Virus updates, preparedness, symptoms and treatment, travel advice, and FAQs
We wish that you and your family remain safe during these trying times.
