Hi, I'm Valentina and I'm landing in Toronto in September and I'll be living in Ontario, Kitchener. My question is about health insurance, do we have to do paperwork before our arrival to activate the insurance when we land in Canada?

Thank you

Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to Service Ontario,
There is no longer a waiting period for OHIP coverage. If you are eligible, you will have immediate health insurance coverage.
In terms of How to Apply:
You must apply for OHIP in person at a ServiceOntario centre.
You will need to bring these documents with you:


You may also find information in the Settlement.Org article, What documents do I need to apply for a Health Card (OHIP)? and Who is eligible for OHIP? Feel free to also contact Service Ontario’s INFOline at 1-866-532-3161 for more information.

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

Your Settlement.Org Team
