Hi

I will be travelling with my 6 months old son as a visitor to Canada. Both me and my hubby have valid work permits and we are planning to have the baby stay with us for some period(around 6-8months).
Also we are planning to take Medical insurance to cover his medical expenses. He has got all his vaccinations done in India upto 6months. Post 6 months, since he is travelling there need to follow Canada(Ontario) immunisation chart
1. Will they provide vaccination for a visitor?
2. Does the medical insurance covers vaccination fee?
3. If not, how much expensive vaccinations would be?

If you guys are coming on work permit and your son is coming as dependent, he should receive OHIP. With OHIP and your employer's coverage everything should be covered.

Hey Thanks for replying!! We have got him Visitor Visa, does that means he will be considered as my dependant and he can get OHIP?
As per my knowledge visitors are not eligible for OHIP.

children of students or work permit holders are an exception.

You may want to check whether the insurance is just an extended health benefit plan which covers things like dental care, prescription medication, etc. You must qualify for provincial healthcare to be able to qualify for most extended benefit healthcare plans.
