Insurance coverage in Canada

Hello everyone,

Moving abroad requires adequate insurance coverage.

What type of insurance expatriates need the most in Canada: health, house or liability insurance? All of them? Do they come as a package?

Are there other insurance options to consider like critical illness, damage or property insurance?

Is it better to purchase insurance from an expat insurance specialist or from a local insurance provider?

And what about insurance costs?

Tell us about your experience in Canada.

Thanks!

Hi Kenjee,

Welcome to Canada!

Please see answers below to your questions:

"What type of insurance expatriates need the most in Canada: health, house or liability insurance? All of them? Do they come as a package?"
Your home/car insurance can be packaged. While you're waiting for your PR, you can get medical insurance in the interim.

"Are there other insurance options to consider like critical illness, damage or property insurance?"
Critical Illness, life insurance, disability and long-term care are available...property insurance would be purchased separately, but can be bundled with car insurance.

"Is it better to purchase insurance from an expat insurance specialist or from a local insurance provider?"
It's best to meet with a Financial Consultant so you can go through your budget and Insurance Needs Analysis. Also, it is best to select insurance from a reputable company like Canada Life, Manulife, Sunlife, etc.

"And what about insurance costs?"
Insurance Costs will depend on your age and insurability, but I always give clients cost comparisons from different companies and point out the advantages between companies.
