OHIP Eligibility when you have an Open Work Visa? Two potential options:
1. For full-time job holders. - So, you can not get OHIP, even when you are luck enough to have a part-time 'essential worker' job currently?
2. You may get OHIP if you have, "applied for permanent residence and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) confirmed that you meet the eligibility requirements to apply for permanent residence in Canada. This means that you have "approval-in-principle.””.
Question fo you all - what exactly is that stage? The Canadian Government website states about my application, "in process" (application received last March, medical exam completed, now awaiting police certificate from home country). Is that sufficient for "approval-in-principle" or, what later stage?

As a part-time essential worker it would seem very unfair if OHIP is denied.

many thanks for any and all feedback!
