Heart valve surgery after endocartitis

Discussion in 'Health' started by Rhuanrlima, May 17, 2019.

  1. Hi, I had heart valve surgery and a stroke after I had endocardititis, and I would like to know if it makes me unable to do any of immigration programs. It's been something that I've been thinking a lot, I have family there and would like to live there

    Thank you in advance
  2. Not necessarily. If your treatment costs less than ~19000 CAD a year, you can still qualify. If it's over that amount, then it will be deemed a significant burden and you may be found inadmissible.

    Also, what family do you have here? Which program do you think you will use?

    All programs have the same health requirements - except for the spousal sponsorship, where you cannot be denied under the significant burden ground.
  3. Would depend on the ongoing side effects from your stroke and also ongoing cardiac issues from the endocarditis. You will have to look whether you qualify to immigrate via one of the immigration programs.
  4. Hey, sorry for the late reply, I'm working remotely for a Canadian company which I'm discussing about a visa sponsorship, I'm totally recovered from the stroke and the only medication I use is a blood thinner for the metallic heart valve, and the metallic valve is the most secure valve as it lasts for lifetime. My brother lives in Montreal which is also the city that I'm looking going to apply.
