Default Spousal sponsorship, working and health coverage

I'm asking this for a friend.... he is Canadian and have been living in Saudi Arabia for 3 years with his Lithuanian wife. They are now moving back to Canada, and arriving next month. I've already said they shouldn't pay for a consultant, and pointed them in the direction of the forms they need, however I'm not sure about 2 things:

Health coverage. Am I right in thinking there is no provincial coverage until you are resident? So while things are being processed she would need to buy insurance?

Working. Can she work at all while things are processing? I'm not sure if there is some kind of temp permit she can get as a spouse, or whether she is just classed as a visitor and so can't work at all.

Thanks you knowledgeable people!

Most provinces have a 90 day waiting period for health insurance even Canadians moving back. She would be classed as a visitor and cannot work if doing an outland application unless she found an employer willing to apply for an LMIA.
Which province are they moving to?

Either Nova Scotia or Ontario. I'll have to check! So he might have to wait for health coverage... Will she be covered at all?

She will have to see if provincial health covers her once province has been established.
