International students

Refer to the following page for all information related to insurance: Insurance and health care for international students.

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.

Insurance claims

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.).

Student card

Student card

ÉTS provides each student with a student card, which is mandatory for accessing laboratories and other services (library, Security Service, Sports complex, ÉTS Coop, etc.). It can also be used as a debit card for certain photocopiers.

How to obtain a student card

  1. Connect to the Mon ÉTS portal
  2. Open the Uploading your photo page
  3. Follow the instructions for uploading an identity photo
  4. Follow the instructions for uploading a photo of an identity document
  5. Send the documents

Your documents will then be verified by an authorized person. If they are approved, you will receive a confirmation email, and your student card will be sent by mail (if you have a Canadian address) or will be made available for pickup at the Prevention and Safety Office, Access Management, in Room A-0135 (if you have an international address). If they are not approved, you will receive a rejection email, and you will have to begin the process again.

IMPORTANT: Your student card will not be created until your photo has been submitted and approved.

Renewing your student card

In case of loss, a $15 fee will be charged for a replacement card. If you have any questions, please contact the premises access attendants at


Lockers, which are available only to undergraduates, are shared between two people. To reserve a locker, you must know the name and permanent code of the person with whom you’d like to share a locker beforehand.
