Canada extended the temporary public policy exempting some foreign nationals from the additional medical exam

On December 24, 2021, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) extended the temporary public policy announced in June 2021 that exempts some foreign nationals from having to complete an additional immigration medical exam as part of their application for permanent residence (PR) or a permanent resident visa (PRV). The policy that is set to expire on December 28, 2021, has been extended until March 31, 2022. This policy will support faster application processing and help in-Canada applicants with the transition to permanent resident status more quickly.
