You visit our clinic for your Immigration Medical Exam.

The complete immigration medical exam is done at our centre. We also provide urine and blood testing, and have an x-ray clinic in our building so you can complete the additional testing you need in one location. You are required to pay for your exam on the day of your appointment.

Once your complete immigration medical exam is done, we electronically send the results to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. We will also give you a document with your case number (IME/UMI) to confirm that you have completed your exam. Reports are submitted within 5-10 business days of your exam.
