International students at the University of Manitoba are eligible for provincial health coverage effective April 1, 2012.  International students will no longer need to purchase additional health coverage while studying in Manitoba.  Current coverage through the U of M plan is valid until April 30, 2012.  It is very important that students apply to Manitoba Health as soon as possible to ensure coverage is in place.
