Frequently Asked Questions

What if I am moving permanently from another province to Saskatchewan?

If you are moving to Saskatchewan, you will start receiving Saskatchewan health coverage beginning on the first day of the third month following the date you established residency in Saskatchewan. Usually, your home province will cover you and your family until your Saskatchewan benefits take effect.

If you are a new Saskatchewan resident, you have to register both yourself and your dependents for a Saskatchewan Health Card to be able to receive health benefits. To apply for a Health Card:

  1. You need to know if you are eligible to apply for a Health Card. You can read about eligibility requirements on the eHealth Saskatchewan website.
  2. You need to provide the necessary supporting documents that will accompany your application:
    • Each adult included on the application must include copies (front and back if applicable) of documents proving:
      • Legal entitlement to be in Canada
      • Saskatchewan residency
      • Support of identity
    • Each dependent must provide documents proving:
      • Legal entitlement to be in Canada
      • Support of identity
  1. Complete an online application or fill out a Health Card Application ​form​ which you can mail, fax or email to the addresses listed on the form, along with supporting documentation.

Make sure to contact eHealth Saskatchewan to provide them your new address and your moving date.

Once you arrive in the new province, make sure to register for the local health benefits as soon as possible!
