Hi,

I have recently moved to Canada and my son is born few days ago, here in Brampton in hospital.

We both (parents) are refugee claimants waiting for the hearing.

We have applied for work permits which are expected to arrive by January 2019, so we dont have a SIN either.

We are living on Ontario Works at the moment.

My question is that what sort of financial support available to us for looking after our child (who as We presume is a Canadian Citizen)?

I thank you in advance for your support and guidance.

Regards,

Mehran

Hello, during covid 19 I stuck in canada and I gave birth here. I applied for health covered since I couldn't leave so now I'm having my newborn! The father is a canadian citizen but we are not married or anything like this. Km thinking to leave Canada with my baby. Do I need my baby's father signature for that?

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

It may be best to consult a reputable and registered immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer familiar with immigration issues and family law for advice regarding your situation. To find a community legal clinic in your area, visit Services Near Me.

You may also want to write to a live chat operator on StepstoJustice.ca for legal information and referral options relevant to your situation. Their live chat feature can be found on the bottom right corner of every page.

Here is an excerpt from the Steps to Justice article, Can I travel with my child after I separate or divorce?:
It's hard to know what you may be asked when travelling to another country. Officials in Canada or in the other country you are going to can ask you for documents to prove you can travel with your child. These officials can decide whether to let you in or out of the country.
To avoid delays or being refused entry or exit at the border, it's safest to have a travel consent letter signed by the other parent.
Even if you have sole custody, you may still be required to show that you have permission of your partner or anyone else that has access to your child, to travel with your child.


You may also find helpful information on health coverage in the discussion forum thread, Pregnant and Newly Landed Immigrant - Finding a Doctor or other health care professional. Here is an excerpt:
You may be eligible for OHIP when you arrive, the Government of Ontario is currently waiving the 3-month waiting period for health coverage due to current events with COVID-19. You may find helpful information in the Settlement.Org article, What documents do I need to apply for a Health Card (OHIP)? and How do I apply for a Health Card (OHIP)?

According to Service Ontario’s COVID-19 notice:
Please note: we have extended validation to expired and expiring health cards. You do not need to renew at this time.

As of March 19, 2020 we are waiving the three-month waiting period for OHIP coverage. If you do not meet the criteria for OHIP coverage and are uninsured, the province will fund the cost of COVID-19 services.


Until further notice, “the Ministry [of Health] requests hospitals provide all medically necessary services to all persons who present at a hospital, regardless of whether the person presents a valid OHIP card, or does not have health insurance under OHIP or another provincial health insurance plan.”

There is more information about prenatal care options in Ontario in this article, I am pregnant and don't have OHIP. What health care can I get?.


We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.


Sincerely,

Your Settlement.Org Team
