I'm studying masters and my specialization was thesis before but I changed it to the supervised project in the first semester. I had already gotten the study permit without the co-op because my specialisation didn't require me to do an internship, but my changed specialization does. Now to apply for the co-op work permit from Canada, it's asking me if I have stayed in a designated country for 6 months in the last year. I'm from India and I landed in Canada on April 2nd, 2020, and today it's November 25th, 2021. It's been 8 months since I've been here. Should I say yes under the questions? My medical exam expired on September 7th, 2020 and it's been more than a year now. WIll i need to re do the medical exam?

yes i mean april 2021, My medical was done on September 7th 2020 and they were not expired by april 2nd 2021.
Your dates in your original post are incorrect. You said your medicals expired in september 2020 so that that confused. Since you've been in Canada for over 6 months, I believe you should answer NO to that question.
