I am calling the Ontario government to fix an important issue pertaining to Ontario health cards.
As it stands, the OHIP card’s online renewal service is only available to those who hold an Ontario driver’s licence. People who do not hold a driver’s licence are expected to do the renewal in person despite having all the necessary documents. Not even the Ontario photo ID is accepted as sufficient documentation to renew the health card online.
This is very limiting for anyone who does not drive, including those who cannot drive due to disabilities.
I therefore ask the Ontario government to make the OHIP card’s online renewal more inclusive by making it available to all eligible residents, including those who do not drive.
