That is a really good question. I actually thought we had an article on it, from a few years ago, but I can't find it. I've commissioned one.

In the meantime I'm sorry I cannot answer your question. There are many private health care plans that provide supplemental services to OHIP which probably also offer full coverage plans, but I don't know how affordable they are.

Travel insurance is an option too, but I suspect it is way more money.

It's very difficult to get insurance in Ontario. At least I tried some companies and they asked me for a lot of paperwork. Who's handled it?

With this question, you need to contact the migration service. It seems to me that the insurance of migrants is on their part. Or try to search for information on official websites. There are a lot of insurance agencies that are aware of all these nuances.
When I was looking for information about liability insurance on the internet, I came across a company There were a lot of good reviews. That's how I found the perfect company that answered all my questions.
I advise you to do the same, it will be more reliable and faster.
