International Students studying in BC School Districts for 6 months (or longer) are required to be covered by the Medical Services Plan of British Columbia.  MSP coverage typically begins three months after students arrive in BC.  Eligible students receive their BC Medical Services Card from their International Assistant once MSP coverage begins.

In addition to MSP, Abbotsford School District provides Guard.Me@BCSCHOOLS , a specially designed policy that covers students for the 3 months while they are waiting for MSP to take effect AND provides extended coverage for items that are not covered by MSP.
