Arrival Information

  • Information for Mississauga Students

    Lambton College in Mississauga strives to provide a smooth and comfortable package of arrival services for its new international students.

    Toronto Airport Pick-up

    Free airport pick-up will be available at the Toronto Pearson International Airport. A college representative will be available to pick up students from the airport and transport them to their location. To register for this service, please complete the Airport Pick-up Application Form at least five days prior to arrival. If a student fails to arrive or cancel without three days notice after pick-up arrangements have been confirmed, a charge of $105 will be applied to the student's account. This service is only available between December 27 and January 12, 2018.

    Temporary Accommodations

    Temporary shared accommodations are provided for new international students at a nearby hotel at the start of each term. Each new international student is eligible for two free nights of shared accommodations between December 27 and January 12. To register for this service, please contact lambton@queenscollege.ca

    Please note: Students who choose to arrive earlier than December 27 or later than January 12 will be required to make their own arrangements at their own cost.

    New Student Orientation

    A new student orientation is held each term. Attendance is mandatory as important workshops and specific courses designed for international students are provided. These courses and workshops play an integral role in the success of your academic program and life in the city of Mississauga.

    Health Insurance

    Once a new international student starts classes at Lambton College, they are automatically covered by  GuardMe - a mandatory medical insurance designed for international students. Visit the GuardMe website for more information about this insurance. International Student Health Insurance. Coverage is effective only from the first day of classes, not from your date of arrival in Canada. Therefore, if you arrive before the start of classes, it is strongly recommended that you purchase travel insurance, including health insurance coverage, to cover yourself until the first official day of classes.

    The health care insurance is a basic package that is subject to change on an annual basis. It is important to emphasize that not all conditions are covered and prospective international students are strongly urged to review the insurance coverage details prior to arrival and to purchase additional insurance coverage as appropriate. Pre-existing medical issues are not covered by this insurance.

    Also important to note is that coverage is for registered Lambton College in Mississauga students only. It does not include or cover spouses or children. If you have a spouse and/or dependents, you may wish to pay a supplemental fee in order to cover them.
