Giving Birth In Cananda

Postby Buidhe » Tue Nov 29, 2016 7:03 am

Hi, my husband is a Canadian citizenship and I’m Mexican, we got married in Mexico a couple of years ago and we are planning to move back to Canada(I don’t have legal papers, but we are planning to apply) and I have a question to ask. I’ll appreciated your opinion or advice:

1)   I’m currently pregnant and my due is in Dec. I would like to know if I decide to give birth in Vancouver, is the hospitalization free? Do I have to pay for gynecological checkups? are there any maternal benefits that I’m going to be entitled by the healthcare program of Canada? Can anyone help to suggest any good hospitals or good obstetrician-gynecologists in Vancouver? Thanks in advance

Dear Alex,

Unless you have status in Canada as a permanent resident, or as a study or work permit holder, and you are a resident of British Columbia, you would not be entitled to any benefits.

I cannot refer you to any hospitals or medical specialists in British Columbia, but I suggest you contact one or more of the hospitals on the list at the following web link for recommendations:http://www.health.gov.bc.ca/socsec/pdf/hospitallist.pdf

I suggest you and your husband begin the sponsorship and application process as soon as possible. You have the choice of having the paper work for your application processed by the Canadian Embassy in Mexico or if you are able to come to Canada as a tourist(once you have decided how you plan to manage the pregnancy -- i.e. in Canada or in Mexico) to have the paper work processed in Canada.

Applications processed outside Canada are better protected in the event of a refusal because you can appeal negative decisions made outside Canada. They may also be processed a little faster.

Here are the links to the Immigration Canada website for both options:

Spouse or Common-Law Partner Class(in-Canada processing)http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/spouse.asp

(both of you must be in Canada to apply in this category)

Family Class(for an application processed in Mexico)http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/fc.asp

Your husband must prove his intention to return and settle in Canada. Note that the sponsorship is processed in Canada.

In both cases, you will need police certificates from all Mexican states plus the federal police, for all places of residence of six months or more since age 18. This includes any other country where you may have resided. I am telling you this now, because it may take a while to get all the documents. Here is the link regarding police certificates:

Police Certificates - Generalhttp://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/security/index.asp

Police Certificates - Mexicohttp://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/security/police-cert/north-america/mexi...

Good luck.
