It’s covered (last I heard, we had to pay but the changed it after) and they do it at the hospital before you come home. Be prepared for some back lash on here, it’s a little controversial (had my son done, so no judgement from me)

No cost

Hi, there's no cost but you have to ask for it in the hospital right after you give birth. I had my son in 2017 and it was done before we went home. You may have to ask more than one nurse to make sure. There are only a couple of the pediatricians who do it, so you may have to wait until they are working.

Recently had twin boys as well. First off congrats. Just talk with the nurses and paediatricians to make them aware that you want a circ for your boys. It’s covered by the province for the the first month only. After that it’s $250 per baby. The paediatrician will take the size, age and weight into consideration before performing the procedure but it’s usually done a day or two from discharge. The first month limit set by the province does apply to premature babies. The fee will only be waved after 30 days if medically necessary.

First off congrats!  
Second, I think too you need to make sure they get the vitamin K shot at birth if you want to circumcise. It helps with clotting. I seem to recall in the papers I got from the midwife that I had to opt for the shot (vs. having oral or skipping entirely) if I wanted circumsision. It wasn't applicable to us because we didn't circumsice, so maybe someone can correct me if I'm misremembering.
