my wife is pregnant and the EDD is 14th of September, we didn't apply for OHIP at the time of landing, we are out of Canda right now, the question is : can we apply for the OHIP from abroad? or we have to come to Canada in person to do that.
Hello my common law partner is a Canadian citizen , we are actually outside Canada on employment contract ,his health card has expired and we are not due to return back to Canada for the moment ,We would like to know how he can renew his card , is there an online form for that purpose ? Thanks for your answers !!!
Note that OHIP eligibility depends not only on the validity of the OHIP card but also on residency in Ontario.
Generally, one must reside in Ontario for at least 5 months each year to maintain coverage. In some cases, one can apply to have their coverage maintained if they will be away for a longer period of time but generally this must be arranged before the absence begins.
