So after DM2, my parents' immigration process became very fast. On Wednesday, one immigration agent called us to ask if my parents are in Canada now. I said Yes and then she said she'll land my parents right now.

Today, I received a COPR letter and it has the instruction of PR card photo size.

However, there is nothing mentioned about how to apply for OHIP card. As I heard there is no 3 month waiting period now for new immigrants. I'm wondering how I can get it now.

Bring in the email to the service Ontario office.

Make sure the COPR letter is printed out. They won't accept it if you just show it to them on your phone.

Probably obvious, but your parents must be at Service Ontario (with or without you). They will need to sign a card for the signatures on their OHIP cards, and have their photo taken there by the agent.
