A man who had lost all of his identification a few years earlier sought our help because he was unable to get health coverage through OHIP.

A man who had lost all of his identification a few years earlier sought our help because he was unable to get health coverage through OHIP. Ombudsman staff made inquiries with OHIP about how he could prove he was an Ontario resident. OHIP was able to verify that he was a permanent resident through Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and granted him temporary health coverage for a year, to allow him time to replace the rest of his missing identification.
