Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

The process for obtaining OHIP coverage depends on where your child was born.

You can find some detailed and helpful information in our Settlement.Org How do I register my child for OHIP? article.

Here is an excerpt,

If your child was born outside of Canada, and is eligible for the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) you will need to apply for a Health Card (OHIP) online or at a Service Canada Centre. It is important to note that there is a 3 month waiting period for OHIP.

If your child was born in Canada, there are two different ways to register them for OHIP depending on where they were born. Your child may be eligible for OHIP even if you are not.


If you have any other questions, you may want to contact the ServiceOntario line directly at:

1-866-532-3161 (Toll-free in Ontario only)
TTY 1-800-387-5559.
In Toronto, TTY 416-327-4282
Hours of operation : 8:30am - 5:00pm

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
