Looking for some help as I have gotten so much inconsistent information on this topic online and also from the CIC call centres which is a bit frustrating... I am a German citizen living in Canada applying for Canadian permanent residency through the family class as a common law partner, applying to the CIC office in Vienna. I have not yet sent in my application but am almost ready to, but I am having trouble with my Medical Examination papers. I did my Medical Examination one month ago, the physician told me he does not have to give me any papers and I can send my CIC application in with just the receipt for my examination. Apparently there were changes to the IME procedures in Nov 1,2012 and now the whole process is different. Yet I have received different information (including on my immigration checklist) stating i should have a completed IMM 1017 form signed by the panel physician that must be included in my package, while the physician's office tells me this is not the case and they have no papers to give me. Any help or advice anyone can offer would me much appreciated as I am at loss as to what to do! Doctors office refuses that there is any paper they must give me while I do believe my package is incomplete without the IMM 1017 form (?).
