Medical Inadmissibility to Canada

Advising Clients Worldwide on the Immigration Impact of Medical Conditions

If you have applied for a visa, a permit, permanent residence or any other type of immigration status in Canada, you will be required to undergo a medical examination. Based on the results of that examination, you could be found inadmissible to Canada on health grounds.

At Embarkation Law Group, our experienced Vancouver-based immigration lawyers advise and represent clients worldwide who have been found inadmissible or who are concerned about medical inadmissibility to Canada on grounds such as the following:

  • Public health: If you have a communicable disease or a condition that the government believes may otherwise present a danger to the public, you may be found inadmissible. Inadmissibility findings are particularly common for applicants with active tuberculosis.
  • Excessive demand: You can also be found inadmissible if the government believes your condition will cause you to place an excessive demand on health or social services within the next five to 10 years.

Applicants for permanent residence are generally subjected to higher thresholds than applicants for visas and temporary permits. However, for policy reasons, spouses and partners who are being sponsored by a Canadian citizen or permanent resident will not be medically inadmissible based on excessive demand to health or social services.

If you are concerned about the impact of medical inadmissibility on your application, our lawyers can help you make your case and pursue any litigation that may be necessary.
