Getting Visitors to Canada insurance has never more affordable or faster

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Goose Insurance Services Inc., an insurance Super-App offering a simple way to instantly buy insurance, is now offering Visitors to Canada and Super Visa Insurance in response to the historic growth of immigrants and long-term visitors to Canada. According to the Government of Canada, the country welcomed 431,645 new permanent residents in 2022, the highest number of new permanent residents in the country’s history. The growth has continued into 2023 with record breaking new immigrants entering Canada since 1972. Each year, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) also issues approximately 17,000 super visas to parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada. The super visa provides a multiple-entry to eligible applicants for up to 10 years, with periods of authorized stay for each individual entry extending for up to 5 years. IRCC plans to issue up to 36,000 super visa’s each year by 2025 under the Family Immigration Plan.

“Canada is experiencing an influx of immigrants that has not been seen in decades and 30% of the population is expected to be immigrants by 2036,” said Omar Kaywan, Co-Founder and Chief Growth Officer at Goose Insurance. “As more people immigrate to Canada, we are also seeing an increase in parents and grandparents traveling to the country for long-term visits on super visas. Recognizing this trend, and as a company co-founded by Canadian immigrants, we sought to make acquiring medical coverage necessary for visitors to Canada and super visa applicants easier to understand and secure, and more affordable.
