Hi folks,

My current status in Canada is a temporary resident. I'm under a student visa attending a full-time program. I also work part-time at College. My question is because I just got married to a Canadian citizen, how can I apply for OHIP?

See the 'who qualifies' on the link below:

https://www.ontario.ca/page/apply-ohip-and-get-health-card#section-2

I don't know what type or TRP you have, OHIP mention that only type numbers 86 through 95 qualify.

You certainly don't qualify just because you have married a Canadian citizen, however, you would qualify if / when your spouse actually sponsors you for permanent residence through spousap sponosorship AND IRCC confirm you have met the eligibility requirements.

You do not qualify for OHIP - you have UHIP coverage as an international student.

Getting married to a Canadian doesn't change this immediately. You need to go through the spousal sponsorship process before you will become eligible for OHIP.
