Reducing health care barriers for uninsured clients without OHIP

September 20th, 2020 from 12:00pm - 1:00pm E.S.T

Rebecca Cheff Headshot 2

Researcher, Wellesley Institute



Despite our universal health care system, there are a number of reasons why someone may be living in Ontario without public health coverage (OHIP). People who are uninsured due to their immigration status face considerable barriers to health care, receive differential care, and have poorer health outcomes.

As we take action to address health inequities, racism, and exclusion in our health system, it is critical that we understand and address the needs of uninsured populations.
In this webinar, we will explore:

  • How people become uninsured
  • What barriers uninsured populations face in the health care system
  • What you can do, as an individual and organization, to support clients who do not have health coverage (OHIP) due to immigration status
