What does it mean if I’m medically inadmissible for excessive demand reasons?

It means you won’t be allowed to enter or stay in Canada because your health condition might cause an excessive demand on health or social services.

This can mean:

  • the need for health services to treat your condition would negatively affect medical service wait times in Canada
  • the services to treat and manage your condition would likely cost more than the Canadian average for health and social services (per person)
