How do immigration officers decide if I’m medically inadmissible for excessive demand reasons?

There is no specific health condition that automatically leads to inadmissibility based on excessive demand on health or social services. We assess each applicant individually.

We make a decision by looking at the results of your immigration medical exam.

We consider:

  • the current state of your health condition(s)
  • the likely prognosis
  • the cost of health and social services that you’ll need over the next 5 to 10 years
  • the effect that your medical care will have on wait lists for health and social services in Canada
