Hubby has had a job offer in Lethbridge and we are hoping to emigrate later this year or early next year. I can get an open work visa under my DH's LMO and potentially a transfer in my current job. However I am an insulin dependent diabetic and am worried as to whether this could affect a visa application?
Badger can yo tell my any details about the short term health policy. DS is hoping to get residency, but has been on a working visa three times now, but his UK insurance which covered him for 6 months ( ski industry) will expire soon and he needs something else. thank you
Health care coverage in Alberta In accordance with the Canada Health Act, Alberta has a publicly administered and funded health care system that guarantees eligible residents of Alberta receive universal access to medically necessary hospital and health care services.
All new and returning Alberta residents must register for Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan (AHCIP) coverage to receive insured hospital and physician services. Alberta Health provides health care benefits in addition to the services required by the Canada Health Act. Eligible residents An eligible resident of Alberta is a person who is:
■Legally entitled to be or to remain in Canada and makes his/her permanent home in Alberta; ■Committed to being physically present in Alberta for at least 183 days in a 12 month period; ■Not claiming residency or obtaining benefits under a claim of residency in another province, territory or country; ■Any other person deemed by the regulations to be a resident not including a tourist, transient or visitor to Alberta. When you move to Alberta from another province or country, there may be a waiting period before you become eligible for coverage under the AHCIP.
