OHIP for new permanent residents

Discussion in 'Health' started by Gabi Elena, May 9, 2019.

  1. How long does it take for new permanent residents to get OHIP insurance from the moment they arrive in Canada?
     
  2. 3 months. You can apply before the 3 months but it only becomes active after the 3 months wait. This assumes that they have come to stay permanently and are not just doing a "soft landing".
     
  3. During the 3-month period, it is always better to have Health insurance from the private insurance carriers to cover unforeseen expenses due to medical condition.
