Canadian Experience Class Medical Requirements

Canadian Experience Class Medical Requirements

Like most Permanent Residence Applications, you may be required to undergo a medical exam in order to finalize your Canadian Experience Class (CEC) Application.

You and any accompanying family members, if applicable, will need to undergo this medical examination. The reason for this is to determine your ‘medical admissibility’ to Canada. You will not be successful in your application via the Canadian Experience Class if you are found to be inadmissible for any reason.

You can be found inadmissible for a number of reasons. This is not only when it comes to medical issues, this is also considered if you have any previous inadmissibility or have previously overstayed in Canada or any other country illegally.
