    it is his social security dissability

    I do know that the US will send SSD payments to Canada (as opposed to other countries). However, you'll have to check if gaining permanent residence in another country somehow disqualifies him (I can't see why but you never know).

    thank you very much and for him to get OHIP does he have to wait to apply or can he as soon as he gets his sponsorship

    Once he has permanent residence, the waiting period is normally 3 months from the time he establishes residence in Ontario for OHIP.

    There are some countries where you can still get your Social Security Disability. However, you might not be able to use Medicaid or Medicare there. You still have to be in that country legally, though.
