Dominion CIC Immigration Medicals

All Immigration Medical Examinations must be conducted by a physician certified to perform the exam by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC).

Your own doctor cannot do the medical exam.

Dr. Barbara Agopsowicz and Dr. Trisha Savitsky are both CIC Certified Panel physicians approved to conduct Immigration Medical Exams for CIC at Dominion Medical Centres.

The purpose of the immigration medical examination is to assess your general health and to identify any major medical conditions. The exam is intended for those applying for the following who have been advised by the CIC to have this exam performed:

  • Permanent Residency
  • Student Visas
  • Worker Visas
  • Visitor Visas

All appointments are 30 minutes in length. You must bring a list of current medications and information on any present or past medical conditions that required treatment by a specialist physician.

Your CIC Immigration Medical Exam will include:

  • Motor function assessment
  • Vital signs (i.e. blood pressure and heart rate)
  • Women over the age of 40 require a breast exam
  • Patients over the age of 75 will require a Mini Mental Assessment and a General Abilities Assessment
  • Blood test for HIV and syphilis
  • Chest XRAY to detect any signs of Tuberculosis
  • No pap smears or invasive procedures are done, unless specific findings during the examination indicate a need for further investigations

Does Dominion perform Upfront Medicals?
Yes. These are medicals performed when you have not yet applied to CIC.

How long does it take to get the results?
It takes about 7 days for all results to come back to us. We will only contact you if the results come back abnormal. If the results are normal we will not contact you.

How long does it take to submit the exam to CIC?
Once we have all of your results and they are normal we submit the exam to CIC. If you are concerned about meeting a deadline to have your examination submitted to CIC, the CIC uses the day you have your exam and not the day the exam was submitted. Once your exam has been submitted to CIC it usually takes them about 4-6 weeks to update it into your application file. This is why CIC uses the day you have your exam.
