Work Canada Insurance

Want to work in Canada in 2017? The visa pool is now open!


It is a programme condition that all participants on Work Canada have adequate insurance for the duration of their stay in Canada which meets the IEC Visa requirements.

BUNAC has partnered with Endsleigh to design a comprehensive policy to cover the needs of the BUNAC Work Canada traveller. You have the option to research and source your own policy, however this must meet IEC Visa requirements.

Flexible policy

At BUNAC we understand that as your time in Canada unfolds and evolves, you may want to change your plans. With this in mind, we have created a flexible policy that will ensure that you are always covered. Some of these flexible benefits include:

  • The ability to purchase a policy from one day through to two years
  • By purchasing the policy at the time of booking, you will ensure that your deposit is safeguarded against cancellation and curtailment
  • You can return home without voiding your policy, for holidays and Christmas etc
  • Your policy will cover you anywhere in the world (with the exception of those countries the FCO advise against travelling to)
  • Your insurance can be extended whilst abroad (up to a maximum of 24 months total trip duration)
  • Up to 100 sports and activities are included at no extra cost
  • Special electrical item cover for an additional premium
  • In the event of a claim, AXA Assistance will be easy to call as they are located all over the world, operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and are English speaking.

This policy has been designed for and is only available through BUNAC; you cannot buy the same policy anywhere else (not even Endsleigh!)

Important information

This policy can only be purchased by UK residents while in the UK. If you have already started your trip, you will not qualify for the BUNAC/Endsleigh policy and will need to get an alternative insurance (this is a very common exclusion, please research your alternative carefully).

Full terms and conditions of the policy are provided on the website. We recommend that you read the full policy wording and familiarise yourself with the policy, the inclusions and exclusion, before buying any insurance.
