You will need to meet certain criteria as per the government of Ontario:

 

Work permit holders may be eligible for Ontario health insurance coverage provided they

  • be physically in Ontario for 153 days in any 12‑month period
  • be physically in Ontario for at least 153 days of the first 183 days immediately after you began living in the province
  • make Ontario your primary home
  • are in Ontario on a valid work permit and are working full-time in Ontario, for an Ontario employer, for at least six months

 

Note that normally, you become eligible after 3 months for coverage, but there are some exceptions in place due to Covid-19. Best bet is to check the Ontario website here:
