I have applied for permanent residence. My spouse or partner and children are not coming with me. Do they need to get a medical exam?
Yes. All of your accompanying and non-accompanying dependants must have a medical exam performed by a Panel Physician approved by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
Non-accompanying dependants must undergo a medical exam to make sure they are admissible to Canada. They must be admissible to maintain their eligibility to be sponsored by their family members in the future.
Having inadmissible dependants might make you inadmissible as an applicant for permanent residence.
