Who needs to take the IME (Immigration Medical Exam) in Canada?

Anyone who applies for permanent residence in Canada, including those applying through the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Provincial Nominee Program, the Family Sponsorship Program, and the Canadian Experience Class, must undergo a medical examination. In addition, anyone who plans to stay in Canada for more than six months and who has visited a country with a high incidence of tuberculosis (TB) must also undergo the IME. Click to book your immigration medical exam.

Why is the IME necessary?

The IME is necessary to protect the health and safety of Canadians, as well as to ensure that immigrants do not unduly burden Canada’s health and social services with medical conditions that require extensive treatment or care. In addition, by identifying medical conditions early, the Canadian government can prevent the spread of infectious diseases and provide appropriate medical care to those who need it. Find more information on our blog, the importance of IME in the Canadian immigration process.

What does the IME include?

The IME includes several components, which may vary depending on the age, sex, and medical history of the examined individual. The components of the IME include:

 

  • Medical history: The panel physician will ask the individual about their medical history, including any previous illnesses, surgeries, or hospitalizations.
  • Physical examination: The panel physician will perform a physical exam, which may include measuring the individual’s height and weight, checking their blood pressure, listening to their heart and lungs, and examining their eyes, ears, nose, and throat.
  • Laboratory tests: The panel physician may order laboratory tests, such as blood or urine tests, to screen for infectious diseases or other medical conditions.
  • Chest x-ray: All applicants over 11 must undergo a chest x-ray to screen for TB.
  • Additional tests: Depending on the individual’s medical history and physical examination, the panel physician may order further tests, such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) or a mammogram.

 

What does medical history in IME checks for?

The medical history component of the IME checks for any past or current medical conditions that could affect the individual’s admission to Canada. The panel physician will ask about any previous illnesses, surgeries, or hospitalizations, as well as any medications the individual takes. The physician will also ask about the individual’s mental health history, including any substance abuse or addiction history.

What does physical examination at IME Ontario in Hamilton checks for?

The physical examination in IME checks for any physical abnormalities or medical conditions that could affect the individual’s admissibility to Canada. The panel physician will check the individual’s height and weight, blood pressure, and heart and lung function and examine their eyes, ears, nose, and throat. The physician will also check for any signs of infectious diseases, such as skin lesions or lymph node swelling.

What does laboratory tests check for?

The laboratory tests component of the IME checks for infectious diseases that could pose a risk to public health or safety. The panel physician will order blood and urine tests to screen for tuberculosis (TB), hepatitis, and HIV. The physician may also request additional tests, such as a chest x-ray, to further screen for TB.

What does chest x-ray check for?

The chest x-ray for IME is required for all applicants over the age of 11. The x-ray screens for active or latent TB, which is a contagious disease that could pose a risk to public health.

Who would require additional tests?

Depending on the individual’s medical history and physical examination, the panel physician may order other tests to assess their health further. For example, the physician may order an electrocardiogram (ECG) to screen for heart conditions or a mammogram to screen for breast cancer in women over 50.
