Immigration Medical Inadmissibility Lawyer

Medical inadmissibility may be long anticipated or come out of nowhere. It’s sometimes difficult to pin down where the government gets its medical information beyond self-disclosures.

Why Medical Inadmissibility Problems Arise

Do you or a family member have a medical condition or illness that could require significant medical treatment, now or in the future? If so, you could have a medical inadmissibility immigration problem. 

Medical inadmissibility usually won’t apply to those only seeking to come to Canada as visitors for a few months, but can be a major impediment to long term residency.

How to Cure Medical Inadmissibility

You may need to secure expert opinions from medical doctors to demonstrate to the Government of Canada that you are unlikely to become a significant burden on Canada's health care system.

If you can't convince the government to change its mind through presenting compelling evidence and negotiations, you may need to proceed before the Immigration & Refugee Board or the Federal Court.  


The firm collaborates with a variety of health professionals in seeking out the best medical expertise available, and then turns that expertise into compelling legal submissions in order to convince Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada that you or your family member poses no medical risks to Canada.
