Compulsory International Health Insurance (IHI)

The McGill International Health Insurance Plan is mandatory for all international students. 

McGill requires all international students and their accompanying dependents to participate in the compulsory McGill International Health Insurance 2017-2018 which is administered by International Student Services. For more information on who is covered please visit here

For new and returning students you must be registered for at least one course for a minimum of 24 hours in order to confirm your contract on Minerva.

Exchange students who require a reassessment of the international health insurance fee, must activate their coverage on Minerva. See more details here.
