Hi @ca_hopeful,

Yes, that's correct.

I did apply for MSP for my twins who were holding only ETA just after applying for their PRs.

In my case, it took only 2 weeks.

Also, you can apply for that online and the agent said it is faster.

You can apply that here. https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/health/health-drug-coverage/msp/bc-residents/eligibility-and-enrolment/how-to-enrol

BTW, you need a stamp in your child's passport as a proof of entry into Canada (you must request a stamp from a border services officer after completing a kiosk transaction). Or, you can submit the boarding pass instead of that, too.

Good luck!
I was trying to apply for MSP for my son - 15 months old (Applied for PR on 30th March 2020, not yet received AOR).

What do I select in the below
Is anyone you're applying for:

  • A student returning to your home province at the end of a course or program; or
  • A minor (under the age of 16) who needs to have their own individual account; or
  • Seeking refugee status and is not approved yet
If I say Yes, I get the below message and doesnt allow to continue online.

You can submit an application with some assistance from one of our representatives - please contact Health Insurance BC:
(604) 683-7151 (Lower Mainland)
1-800-663-7100 (Elsewhere in B.C.)

thanks, i will have to go to manage my account and add my son as dependent. His TRP has expired and application for new TRP is in process. I think I should wait till the time I get new TRP as attaching old expired TRP might lead to rejection.

Hello everybody, I am filling in the forms for sponsoring my dependent child. The sponsor is my husband who is in Canada. I have a question on the Declaration from non-accompanying parent. Along with the form, a 'photocopy of the identity proof of the parent, bearing their signature' has been asked. What does this mean:
a) a document which has my signature (for ex: passport) OR
b) the photocopy must be signed by me, non-accompanying parent

It would be great if any of you, who had provided this form, can answer the above question.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi
That form only needed if the other parent is not coming to Canada with the kid.

Guys I think the best way to speed up this process is by sending an email to Jenny kwan maybe that would help like it did for spousal sponsorship but I really hope dependent children are included as well

I am with the child in India and my husband is in Canada and he will sponsor the child so as I am not the co-signer, I will need to sign this form right?

ACTUAL ARTICLE of JENNY KWAN after this Notice
My heart goes out to all the spouses and children who have been forced to live in separation and uncertainty while they navigate the pandemic apart. The over 6,000 Canadians who signed the petition I tabled today were clear that they were deeply frustrated by the government's silence towards families calling for action. While I am dismayed it took over 6 months to get an answer, I am glad that the voices of separated families are finally heard. I will monitor this closely to ensure there is real follow through and the expected outcomes are achieved.
Going forward, the Liberals should also learn from this experience and make every effort to prevent the pain and suffering for families as a result of long processing delays. That's why I'm continuing to call for the issuance of a special temporary resident visa for family sponsorship applications that have been approved in principle, so that they can reunite in a compassionate timeline.
To be clear, there is still much more to be done to reunite families, as couples in committed long-term relationships, including fiancé(e)s, remain left out. Same-sex couples with a partner in another country that may not honour, respect or even discriminate against their relationship remain particularly at risk and are left out by the current travel exemptions. Swift action needs to be taken to address these ongoing concerns while ensuring proper quarantine measures are respected.
