In a bit of a complex situation and just need to make sure I am getting the rules right. I'm a landed permanent resident since 1-2 years back and after all this become pregnant. I am yet to move to canada but was planning to this year but then "life" (in literal terms) happened. In order to make an informed decision I'm wondering the following: 1) If moving to canada after giving birth to the baby will I be able to sponsor the child to canada in the future (provided I reside in canada and am not on social assistance at the time- the general sponsoring rule)? Will the child have to undergo a medical examination of some sort or do I need to inform cic for some reason? I obviously could not declare my child on the application for PR nor let cic know prior to landing since I was not pregnant at that time. 2) Ideally I would move to canada already because my plan was to do so. However if I did I would not qualify for OHIP yet, which obviously sucks when expecting to give birth! I read stories about newborn babies born in canada being admitted to neonatal care and the parent being billed thousands of dollars. Could this be the case for a newborn baby that is staying permanently in canada with their parent that's a permanent resident or were these "tourism" cases? I appreciate all your feedback!
