That does sound like you got lucky. I guess it is at the discretion of the point of entry officer. I believe in case they do want to see the proof of income and coverage they give you a chance to apply for additional coverage right on the spot, but that's not confirmed.yokies said:I was unable to find a place that would cover for 2 years too. So I purchased a 1 year travel insurance and my intention was to extend it after. I am currently on IEC. I was never asked to provide my insurance or proof of income when I got my permit (maybe I was lucky?), they gave me the 2 year permit.
Yes some people do qualify for provincial coverage, not everybody though. You can you do you can cancel your private coverage and go on provincial. Visa officers will still want to see coverage for the duration of desired stay when you enter Canada.garyoswald said:Is it actually possible to get a Provincial Health Plan holding an IEC visa?
I thought WH visitors do not qualify for it.
