Canadian school registration
When you arrive at a school dormitory or homestay, you have more things to do, such as school registration, getting a bank card, getting a mobile phone card, getting a health insurance card, and more.
- Health Insurance: The health insurance for overseas students is compulsory, and parents have already paid health insurance when they pay their tuition fees. Students sign up & activate health insurance when they sign up for a student card. After registration, remember to print the insurance card into your wallet, go to the clinic after the clinic will be used. Ontario's universities are using Sun Life's UHIP insurance basic, any questions at any time to ask the school or their Sun Life website log in and access information.
- For bank cards: before leaving the country, students in Canada have basically completed a bank account, which is about one year's living expenses and so on. Once you arrive in Canada, you can pick up your passport and sign up to the appropriate bank to connect your account, get a Debit Card for a savings card, or apply for a Credit Card. After that if you want to change the bank is also very convenient.
- Mobile phone cards: Canadian telecommunications companies Rogers, Bell, Telus, Fido, Freedom Mobile, Woodo, Virgin, etc., we can according to their needs and preferences package to choose carrier companies.
