Travel and Medical Insurance information.
Unexpected medical and travel incidents do occur, and they often have hidden costs. We strongly encourage all our participants to purchase additional insurance before taking a SKILS program. Specifically, ask your travel agent about trip cancellation insurance and additional medical insurance to cover events such as wilderness evacuations, ambulance transfers, and medical equipment. The latter is especially important for individuals traveling outside their home province and internationally to take SKILS programs. Also consider purchasing travel insurance in case of an unforeseen situation where you need to cancel such as an injury, a family emergency, a change in your career, etc.
