Keeping you informed
IMPORTANT INFORMATION about travel coverage.
Starting October 1, your insurance carrier that provides emergency travel insurance has changed to Manulife.

If you are out of the country or planning to travel, please carefully review your emergency medical insurance coverage, and contact Rob Bussey with any questions.

An important change to your coverage. Planning to travel this fall or winter?
Starting October 1, RSA will no longer provide Trip Cancellation, Interruption and Delay coverage when either directly or indirectly due to Covid-19.
Your Out-of-province/country emergency medical insurance will continue to cover you for up to 90 days per trip. Remember, your travel medical emergency contact information is on the back of your card. And before you go, it’s a good idea to contact RSA to make sure you’re covered.
