Hi,

I am a new immigrant to Toronto, and I still haven't got my health card.

My newly married wife, who is not yet a Canadian permanent resident, is going to give birth in Oct 2017.

I am seeking alternatives of the health services for my wife.

Can you give me some advice about the kind of insurance that I can get if my wife want to give birth of the baby in Toronto?
