The Winter Coat Project: The warmest of gestures

Chaplaincy Services gives away 500+ winter coats to students in need every year

By Neale McDevitt - for the McGill Reporter

Like war and childbirth, a Montreal winter cannot be adequately described with mere words. It is a physical test that defies intellectualization. You have to live it to really understand it. And “live it” might be a little optimistic – “survive it” is probably more apropos.

Request for extended International Health Insurance

Extended Health Insurance for international students

McGill's International Student Health Insurance plan has been extended to cover expenses related to Emergency Medical Care, Basic Health and Supplementary Health benefits, as well as Accidental Dismemberment and Repatriation, for international students participating in a study away program.

International students are eligible if you meet the following criteria:

Payment Express

Payment Express is a convenient service that reimburses you for the medical expenses you incur. You do not need to complete a claim form.

Here's how it works:

  • Present your medical and prescription receipts in person at the front counter on the ground floor of the Blue Cross Building (550 Sherbrooke Street West). Opening hours are 8:30 to 4:30, Monday to Friday.
  • Unless further investigation is required, you will be reimbursed immediately.

Canadian non-resident sign-up form

Non-resident Canadian students or new Permanent Residents who are not eligible for a Canadian health plan and have no insurance coverage or whose private insurance is not adequate, have the option of enrolling in McGill's International Student Health Insurance (IHI) Plan. To do so they must complete the form below no later than September 30 (Fall Term) or January 31 (Winter Term) or May 31 (Summer Term).
