Can you purchase Apple Care for a mini bought at Future Shop?

My husband bought me an IPad mini for Christmas. I'd like to purchase Apple Care for it. Is it possible to purchase Apple Care for a product bought at Future Shop Canada?

    Yes, I am in a similar situation having bought my iPad Air through my mobile carrier.

    I've contacted Apple and they advised that I have to add Apple Care within 30 days of purchase to my device.
    I was instructed to make an appointment with the Genius Bar at my local Apple Store because they inspect it for damages prior to insuring it. From the information I received it's $99 at this time and covers 2 years from date of purchase.

    The other option I was given was that if you happen to live out of reasonable driving range of an Apple Store to contact Apple's customer care to see what other options you may have to get that added.

    Hope this helps.
