Quick Pay

Quick Pay (Paiement 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:

Exemptions

By Senate Regulation, ALL international students (full-time, part-time, exchange, special and visiting) and their accompanying dependent(s) are required to participate in the University's compulsory sickness and accident plan. Students who meet certain criteria may be eligible for an exemption. The list of exemption categories can be found under Eligibility for Exemption. Please note that, students covered by private health insurance are not exempt from the McGill plan.

The Buddy Program

Being new to Montreal and McGill can be daunting; make the transition easier (and more fun) by joining the Buddy Program!

The Buddy program pairs new international students with current students who provide the friendly face, helping hand, and first Montreal friendship that can make a world of difference for new arrivals. Buddies can also offer linguistic support, cultural guidance and information about life at McGill.
