I am writting an update on the medical examination for the sponsored (due to the ignorance of some DMP offices);
1) Know and contact DMP offices ask them what is required other than appendix C of 3912e (It is used when an applicant presents a completed Appendix C – Medical Instructions.). This is an upfrond medical exam for a family sponsored person. If they tell you we do not do medical without the embassy forms sent to you (report them to the Canadian embassy immediately, as they refused to conduct a medical exam on family sponsored immigrant).
Find a DMP:http://www.cic.gc.ca/dmp-md/medical.aspx
2) Fill Appendix C in 3912e (regional form)
3) In your exam appointment. Two original copies of form IMM 1017 (IMM 1017 EFC
+ Appendix C). DMPs must never give a copy of the immigration medical examination documents to applicants or their representatives. The only document that is returned to the applicant is the second copy of the Medical Report: Section A (IMM 1017 EFC).
The doctor will sign the form and mail the first copy to the Canadian Regional Medical Office (RMO) with the results of the examination. You will be given the second copy as proof you underwent the medical examination. You must include this copy with your immigrant application when you send it to your sponsor. Photocopies will not be accepted. If you lose it, you will not be able to obtain a duplicate;you will have to redo the medical examination and pay any associated fees again.http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/publications/dmp-handbook/appendix-02.asp#appC
DMPs must forward all immigration medical reports to the regional medical office in their area by mail. Do not send immigration medical reports to the visa office processing the applicant's file. This will only increase the processing time.
Medical records must be sent within five days of the receipt of all required information. In urgent situations, DMPs may request that medical records be expedited. DMPs may forward these records by commercial courier, at the applicant's expense.
Applicants are responsible for all shipping costs.http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/partner/dmp/exam.asp#upfront
It is your right to know your mail track number. You paid for the mail did not you!
When you and your family members go for your medical examination, make sure you have this sheet completed for each person, along with the following items:
•passports for yourself and your family members, plus a photocopy of the bio-data page of each passport. If a passport is not available, provide an official identity document bearing the photo and date of birth of the family member;
•eye glasses or contact lenses, if you or your family members wear them;
•previous medical report(s), if any. You must tell the examining doctor about all past and present medical problems and conditions, and provide the doctor with any available documentation such as physician's reports, treatment or prescriptions; and
•five recent pictures taken within six months preceding the date of the examination and, where applicable, a negative for yourself and your family members (see section on photos in the instructions on how to complete the Application for permanent residence).
The medical examination includes:
•complete physical examination for all family members;
