How does health insurance work in Canada for international students?

The public healthcare system in Canada (Medicare) is funded by taxes, meaning that all Canadian citizens and permanent residents pay towards the system and have access to it when they need medical aid. As international students do not pay taxes (or pay only partial taxes if working part time), they do not have access to this service and must have private healthcare to access the system.
