Emergency Travel (Out of Province and Out of Country) Coverage is insured by SSQ Insurance Company in collaboration with AXA Assistance. It is provided to those employees and family members insured under the HANS health programs (Both Manulife and Great West Life).  For clarification, this is for emergency medical, it is not for trip cancellation.

We do recommend caution against non-essential travel outside of Canada per the Government’s guidance.  Travel advisories are located at https://travel.gc.ca/travelling/advisories
