Minister Lake Response Re: MSP Enrollment for Infants

December 2016

In response to First Call’s letter, Minister of Health Terry Lake explains the results of a teleconference regarding the issue of providing immediate health care coverage to Canadian infants born to parents whose immigration status is uncertain.

“The Ministry has committed to ensuring Canadian born children who meet the residency requirements in BC are registered and receive MSP benefits. We have assigned a dedicated staff member to review and process any applications that Sanctuary Health has received.”
