I am newcomer and landed with my family as permanent residents in Toronto previous week.

We don't have health insurance or OHIP card yet.

My 2 year old daughter got cold and has fever, sore throat and cough.

Where should I refer to see a doctor and receive medical service?

Is there a place to support newcomers in such condition?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be concerned about your daughter's situation.

If you don't have a health (OHIP) card, you might be eligible for services at a Community Health Centre (CHC). Some doctors accept patients who have private health insurance or who pay for services.

Many settlement and community agencies can help you find health care. To find help in your area, use our Services Near Me tool.

You may also want to dial 211 on a phone to speak to an Information and Referral Specialist to see if they can refer you to the nearest community health clinic or a low-cost walk in clinic.

211 is a free service that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We hope this information is helpful.
