Group insurance (health and dental)
Members of the Student Association are covered by a group insurance plan. All members are invoiced and registered for the health and dental care plan administered by the Alliance pour la santé étudiante au Québec (ASÉQ – Alliance for Student Health in Québec)).
International students, including those who are registered for a mobility program (short program, certificate), are automatically invoiced and registered for the ASÉQ coverage, which is optional. Students who determine that this coverage is not required are responsible for opting out of the plan by visiting www.santeetudiante.com.
Students who are registered for an integrated program, for which ÉTS usually assumes the tuition fees, are responsible for paying their own group insurance fees.
Only international students who are registered for ECH1 and ECH2 programs are not invoiced or registered for the group insurance plan.
For more information, please consult the Alliance pour la santé étudiante au Québec or the ÉTS Student Association, at 514-396-8883.
Accident insurance (group plan)
Full-time or part-time students are protected in the event of an accident on campus and when travelling between ÉTS and home.
What to do in the case of an accident?
Inform the Security Service as quickly as possible. No matter where you are on campus, you can always contact the Prevention and Security Service, which will dispatch the required resources to the appropriate location. You could also call 911, depending on the urgency and severity of the situation.
To contact the Prevention and Security Service:
- From the ÉTS campus: extension 8900
- From outside the campus or from the residences: 514-396-8900
- In case of emergency (from internal phones only): dial 55
- Go to Pavilion A, located at 1100 rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Room A-0110 (immediately to the left of the main entrance).
Security Officers will intervene and provide the required assistance. They will also fill out an accident report, which will serve as proof for the insurer.
To file a claim, you must submit the duly completed claim form and the required supporting documents to the insurer within 90 days following the accident.
To contact an Industrial Alliance representative, call 1-888-266-2224 (Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.).
