Hi everyone. First of all good luck with your settlement and new life in Canada. I am going to immigrate to Canada next month as a PR. Before sending my passport I was aked to provide the address where "I intend to live in Canada", so I provided an address in Ottawa of a friend of mine. I will initially land in Ottawa and probably stay there until I receive my PR card (unless I get a Job in another province), after that I would like to move to Fredericton New Brunswick. The thing is, do I need to buy a health insurance? My question is because as far as I know access to Public Health Care will not be available for me until I receive my PR Card and other documents from the Canadian Government. Please help me with this issue and if it is necessary to buy a health insurance could you please rocommend me a reliable insurance company to do that, how much it costs and for how long is it recommended to get that insurance? Thanks in advance for your help.
