    Alberta Health Care?

    Alberta Health doesn't recognize implied status From all I've read about AHC - basically what happens is - your coverage terminates - when you restore status AHC will backdate coverage (and he'll owe premiums) - so make sure if he pays any bills for the doc's during that time frame that he saves...

    How Long Is To Long?

    They don't just pop your application in the mail to the visa office The applications are sent via diplomatic courier and they don't send them one at a time I guess what I'm saying is - it really all depends on how busy that office is - the busier offices get packages of applications more often...

    Co-Signer

    3 years is spousal - there is no co-signing for spousal If there is welfare to be repaid - they will find it for sure when you go to sponsor your husband Best bet is to call the province where this person was living at the time & ask if you owe If they won't tell you - can always try CIC
