The health of migrant workers is important. Workplace insurance or public health insurance can help them when they are sick or injured. However, it can be difficult to figure out the type of medical insurance and services that migrant workers can get depending on the Temporary Foreign Worker Program stream.

How does each form of medical insurance work? What expenses are covered? How can migrant workers access medical services? These are some of the questions that were addressed in this webinar by our expert guest speakers.
