While staying home is the safest option, some people have compelling reasons to consider travelling. SSQ Insurance has launched an information guide to help understand travel insurance coverage for emergency medical expenses, as well as trip cancellations and interruptions, directly related to the different risk levels issued by the Canadian government. While it can't answer every travel-related question, it can help plan members make informed decisions. Visit this interactive guide for information on what to expect in the event of emergency medical expenses, trip cancellation or interruption.
