Hi,

My wife's OWP expired in January, 1st and so did her OHIP. We already applied for her extensions, which was approved on January 6th. They sent us a letter saying that the new OWP was mailed to us.

But my wife is pregnant and we have a lot of exams to do this week. Is it possible to renew our OHIP using the letter CIC sent to us? Saying that the WP was approved? Or do we have to wait until the WP arrives?
