No Fees In Universal Healtcare:

Eliminate The International Student Health Fee!

The International Student Health Fee (ISHF) is unjust and imposes financial, social, and administrative burden in the British Columbia (BC) healthcare system. 

We demand concrete and meaningful action to eliminate the exclusive, unfair, and expensive International Students Health Fee. 

The principle of universality of the Canada Health Act requires that “all residents of a province or territory be entitled, on uniform terms and conditions, to the publicly funded health services covered by provincial/territorial plans.” The ISHF is a clear violation of this principle. 

No fees should be required for “Universal HealthCare”!
