When you land you will be given an envelope containing the forms you need to fill for your PR Card – i.e. the Permanent Resident card as well as your Health coverage card. Again, health services are provided individually by the Provinces and each Province has different rules of how you access these services. In BC and Ontario your health care coverage does not start for 180 days so do get health insurance for you and your family as it can be expensive paying for services privately. If you are landing in another Province than those we spoke of, you can expect to receive your health services card within 10 working days.
