The GlobalGuard plan is comprehensive and cost effective (only about $1.45 a day)
To purchase GlobalGuard online visit www.guard.me and go to the "Products" tab on the top and click "Global Guard". Find the "Apply Online" tab and click "Standard Plan for Individuals". You will see NSCC in the list of institutions at the bottom of the application form.
If you have questions you can contact GlobalGuard at 1-877-873-8447 or or email email@example.com
Registration of Canadians Abroad:
