I am currently in Canada on a Working permit, my husband is Canadian, resident of Saskatchewan. We are currently living in Regina. I am 3 months pregnant and wondering where I stand for health coverage? and what happens when I have had the baby, does it have citizenship? and what does that do for me?

Any help would be fantastic

Are you covered by the health care in SK?  Temporary foreign workers usually are.  If you are, then your health care expenses will be covered.

Here is how to register:
and documents needed:

If you have worked 600 or more hours by the time you go on maternity leave, you would be able to get maternity benefits, see

Your baby will be a Canadian citizen.  Having a Canadian baby will do absolutely nothing for your status.  If you want to stay in Canada for good, your husband needs to sponsor you for PR or you need to find a way to apply for it on your own.

PR=Permanent resident - TFW=temporary foreign worker
FSW=federal skilled worker - QSW=Quebec skilled worker
AEO=arranged employment offer - LMO=labour market opinion
CEC=Canadian experience class - PNP=provincial nominee program

Just so you most of the private insurance companies do not cover any expenses related to pregnancy, however there are a few out there that cover pregnancy up until 31 weeks. They would not cover delivery or regular check ups, however if you go in labour 9 weeks or more before your due date or if there is any emergency you could be covered. Just fyi! Good luck to you with everything!
