Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

You may find helpful information in the Settlement.Org articles, Who is eligible for OHIP? and What documents do I need to apply for a health card? Here is an excerpt:
Permanent Residents ("landed immigrants")
  • Valid Permanent Resident Card or a Permanent Resident Card that has been expired for less than 5 years
  • Confirmation of Permanent Residence (IMM5292 or IMM5688)
  • Record of Landing (IMM1000)



If you do not have your PR card, you can use your Confirmation of PR as proof that you meet the eligibility requirement there. It is best to also contact the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for some information specific to your situation.


You can find some contact information here: http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/common/

or Call ServiceOntario, INFOline at:

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

You can find some information in our Settlement.Org article here:

How do I register my child for OHIP?
“If your child was born in an Ontario hospital or at an Ontario home attended by a registered midwife. You must complete an Ontario Health Coverage Infant Registration form. Hospital staff or a registered midwife will give you this form soon after your child is born.”

You can find more information about the document requirements in this article.

There is information about OHIP for babies on the Ontario.ca website.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any follow-up questions, please feel free to post them to the discussion forum here.
