Streamlined IME

IRCC has introduced a new temporary public policy that exempts specific low-risk foreign nationals in Canada from submitting a new IME if their previous IME has expired. This exemption applies to foreign nationals with either a new or pending application for permanent or temporary residence or a permanent resident visa, all made from within Canada, and who have completed an immigration medical exam within the last five (5) years with no risk to public health or safety.

If your immigration application requires a streamlined IME instead of a standard IME, IRCC will provide you IMM1020 form with an instruction letter. For further information and to book your appointment, please visit our bookings page.

Excellent, professional, diligent service. Transparent, honest, diligent, friendly staff. I had a medical for permanent residence at another medical center 3 months ago, and every step of that process was erroneous and unprofessional. So I came to this medical centre with a short timeframe remaining to repeat a permanent residencce medical. Thee staff were genuinely caring, thoughtful, showed sympathy and empathy, and really wanted to help me. Best service I've received in Canada.,
