Access to health

Resolution number: 
12
November 2004
Whereas: 
  1. Some of the provincial health insurance plans (such as OHIP in Ontario) do not provide provincial health insurance coverage for “family members” of protected persons who are residing in Canada and who are being processed for permanent resident status simultaneously with the protected person;
  2. It is a waste of resources to have to make a refugee claim for these family members in Canada just so that they will have IFH coverage;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR request all provincial health ministers to ensure that the family members of protected persons are eligible for provincial health insurance coverage.
