Canada’s New Express Entry Immigration Policy: No Upfront Medical Examination Required

Recently Canada has made a significant move and updated its Express Entry immigration policy. Learn more about it through this blog.

After 1 October 2023, no applicant is required to go through an upfront medical examination at the time of submission of the application. The aim of this change is to make the process easier by reducing initial barriers for potential immigrants.


Key Highlights

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) manages Express Entry, which is a mechanism for handling economic immigration applications, especially through:

  • Federal Skilled Worker Class (FSWC)
  • Federal skilled trades class (FSTC)

Previously, it was crucial for applicants to go through an immigration medical exam (IME) from a panel physician.

After the latest policy, you can add a copy in the existing upload field if you have completed an IME. If you haven’t, then you will be instructed to upload a blank document. If no IME is given, then a search for prior completed IMEs will be conducted by the processing officers, associating them with the application.

Within 60 days of receiving an invite to apply, the Express Entry system requires that you submit an electronic application for permanent residence.

What Does This Mean for Applicants?

This policy change makes the initial application process easier and lets the potential immigrant wait for further instruction when it comes to the medical examination. It is a major approach to making the process efficient and user-friendly.
