Know your rights is a Guide to access to health care for uninsured and precarious status migrants in Ontario.
An estimated 500,000 people in Ontario are denied health coverage due to their immigration status. Many children, adults, and seniors have been denied care in emergency rooms, have been asked for thousands of dollars upfront for healthcare, have received massive bills or have foregone healthcare altogether when they needed it. People have died as a result of our system in Ontario that denies care to people who need it. We can stop unnecessary and high cost health complications. We can stop denying sick people care. We can create the society we all want to live in by providing healthcare for all people living in Ontario, regardless their of immigration status.
