In-Person Health Card Application - Work Permit

Hi Anna,

This isn't correct. If the person seeking an OHIP card is not a PR, they have to go to 777 Bay St. in Toronto. Found out the hard way after going to the one by Trinity Bellwoods and waiting in line for 15 minutes.

Hello there,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some detailed instructions in our Settlement.Org How do I apply for a Health Card (OHIP)? article.

You should get an application form online or from your local Service Ontario OHIP Office.

Use the ServiceOntario Service Finder to find the closest one to where you are located.

You will see that it will pull up a listing of offices. In each listed office, it will indicate which services are provided at the office.

Make sure that the office you select that is closest to you provides services related to OHIP.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
