Interim Federal Health Program Policy
The Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) provides in-Canada limited, temporary coverage for health-care benefits to protected persons, refugee claimants and other specified groups who aren’t eligible for provincial or territorial health insurance. It also provides certain pre-departure medical services to refugees coming to Canada for resettlement.
The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) of 2002 provides the legislative authority for Canada’s immigration program. The IRPA contains various provisions that allow the Minister to issue special Instructions to immigration officers to enable the Government of Canada to best attain its immigration goals.
