The province of New Brunswick has announced that publicly-funded health care is now available for international students who are completing full-time studies in the province. The announcement was made on October 6 and the new measure will come into immediate effect.

In order to receive coverage, international students in New Brunswick must submit a New Brunswick Medicare application form. In addition, international students must provide the following information and documentation: date of arrival to the province, a valid study permit from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), and proof of full-time enrolment in a New Brunswick university or college.

Medicare coverage is also being extended to spouses and dependents of international students. Read the full story on Canada Study News.
