During Your Trip > The Canadian government has announced changes to its requirements of a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding my return flight to Canada. I understand that I may now be able to obtain a rapid antigen test result rather than the more expensive PCR test.

These test requirements are changing all the time.   As the situation continues to evolve please refer to the most up-to-date information and details at travel.gc.ca.  This site also provides a list of locations abroad where you can get the required test.

Unless these tests are associated with a medical emergency that is covered under your policy, your insurance is not likely to cover this expense.

KNOW YOUR RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES – These requirements are changing regularly. For up-to-date information on these requirements, monitor travel.gc.ca
