Medical insurance for new immigrants to Canada

Updated: Feb 21

Immigrants or foreign-born people moved to Canada are about one fifth of total population of Canada. Since 2001, Canada has welcomed roughly more than 200,000 immigrants and in 2017, Canadian government announced around to welcome one million more immigrants to Canada. Canada promises free health care to its residents and citizens and this is one of the main services that attracts immigrants from all over the world. However, new immigrants to Canada need to wait for around three to four months to get health card provided by the provincial government in Canada, e.g., health card provided by Ontario health. Any sickness or illness happen during this three to four month period can put new immigrants in trouble because health care is very expensive in Canada. In case of emergency one night stay in hospital can averagely cost $3000 to $5000. Therefore, to avoid such tough situations it is strongly recommended new immigrants or returning Canadians waiting for provincial government health coverage to purchase medical insurance.
