I am currently in Canada. I applied for PR under EE this month and did the medical exam in a clinic, and then the clinic asked me to take a sputum culture test and the second x-ray after 3 months since they found very small dots on my lung. I did all they asked, and the clinic submitted my result to IRCC, BTW, the sputum test result shows all negative, however, IRCC sent me an email says I need to do medical surveillance. My case status doesn't show medical passed yet, so I wonder how this will affect my application. I will get medical passed after this surveillance or the case will be continued processing, I'll do it once I get PR and after the landing.

Thx heaps

The email looks like this:

Good Day,



The results of your immigration medical examination (IME) indicate that you are required to report to a provincial/territorial public health authority (P/T PHA), as you may have a medical condition considered to be one of public health significance in Canada requiring a medical follow-up referred to as surveillance.



The P/T PHA has the responsibility to conduct a medical follow-up according to established protocols. Therefore, you may receive a letter or a phone call from the P/T PHA regarding next steps to completing medical surveillance. The P/T PHA must inform Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that you have complied with medical surveillance for IRCC to update your file.



Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, response times and the availability of appointments has been affected. This means it may take longer than 3 months for your appointment to be scheduled. If you have not heard anything from the P/T PHA after six months, please email the Public Health Liaison Unit at IRCC.MHBSurveillance-SurveillanceDGMS.IRCC@cic.gc.ca



For IRCC to notify the designated P/T PHA of your medical surveillance requirement, please kindly ensure that you have provided IRCC with your updated Canadian residential address. A copy of your IME will also be sent along with the notification. Please know that without a Canadian residential address, IRCC cannot inform the P/T PHA of your medical surveillance requirement. If you do not know your address upon arrival, or if you relocate to a different province prior to your appointment with public health, please email the Public Health Liaison Unit at IRCC.MHBSurveillance-SurveillanceDGMS.IRCC@cic.gc.ca



As a friendly reminder, failure to comply with all the conditions in this notice may be reportable under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and could have an adverse impact on your current and/or subsequent immigration applications to Canada.





A copy of this correspondence will be included in your file.



We thank you in advance for your cooperation in this important request.



Kind regards,





The Public Health Liaison Unit / Unité de liaison avec la santé publique

Migration Health Branch / Direction générale Migration et Santé

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) / Immigration, Réfugiés et Citoyenneté Canada

well if you have active TB for example, you can get rejected.

If you had pneumonia before and those dots are the consequence of that, you'll be fine

Medical surveillance is once you get PR, then you need to carry out another XRAY and other tests as required.
We received Medical Surveillance and after we landed got it done and cleared it.

Thank you for your reply. Were you in Canada when you applied for PR, I wonder if it could be different for me already in Canada. I know many people did it after landing because they were outside of Canada.

No I was outside canada. You can even approach the local health community now and check with them. If they have you on file then you can go ahead with the surveillance.

You should contact to your local public health authority once u land in CAN and follow their pocedure. If u need to travel, then u should report to the doctor who does medical surveillance for u.
