I have been confirmed by (multiple) Panel Physicians that, since 2017, they don't have the right to do Medical exams upfront for Permanent Residency applications that are not Express Entry.
"Some clinics still do upfront medicals for permanent residency, but it can badly affect your immigration file."

Is this the reply from Clinque d'immigration Maisonnevue Rosemont Clinic ?
I know someone who did upfront medicals at Clinique médicale Luso in Mid 2018 and he got PPR some months back.
" badly affect your immigration file " is just fear mongering of a business which will lose their clients to clinics which does upfront medicals. So I would not take that part into consideration.

Update:

Upfront medical examinations are no longer available for family class applicants.
New text:
  • Upfront medical examinations are available for the following immigration classes:
    • Temporary residents:
      • Students;
      • Workers;
      • Visitors.
    • Permanent residents:
      • Express Entry applicants.

Now @Italy You should cite your CIC source where it mentions that upfront medical exams are not allowed for Quebec Skilled Worker. AFAIK, Quebec Skilled Worker is not Family class.

I got a similar reply from other 2 clinics. 3 clinics out of 5. Why they would not do the upfront medicals, if they could?
It seems to me a choice from serious clinics rather than mongering.

It seems its not available for Family class applicants. Quebec Skilled Workers are not Family Class. Maybe the clinics are too eager to reply without even making a distinction between a Family Class and Quebec Skilled Worker. I just called Clinique médicale Luso and they confirmed that they do upfront for Quebec Skilled Worker and not for Family Class.

This are my sources. Excerpt from CIC website:

Upfront medical examinations are no longer available for family class applicants.
  • Upfront medical examinations are available for the following immigration classes:
    • Temporary residents:
      • Students;
      • Workers;
      • Visitors.
    • Permanent residents:
      • Express Entry applicants.

Yes. So it means Quebec Skilled Workers are allowed or not allowed ?
The headline says "Upfront medical examinations are no longer available for family class applicants."
Anyways to each on their own. I already booked an appointment for upfront medicals.

To me, it means Quebec Skilled Workers are not allowed. And "Upfront medical examinations are no longer available for family class applicants." sounds like an update since previous guidelines.
But I don't know, it is confusing.

I called Luso to confirm and they clearly stated that they need the IME request from CIC unless you are express entry. They probably misunderstood you are doing express entry when they did your appointment. I checked with several other cliniques and they all had the same feedback

Well, we will soon know. I will update once I complete the upfront medicals and see if CIC accepts it.

Last week, I received CSQ in my mon project Inbox. It's a pdf file. I am confused about CSQ number, I guess it's not written.
Are they going to send any hard copy by mail? If not, what will be CSQ number?

These are three numbers in my CSQ, which one is CSQ number.
Numéro du dossier d'immigration du Québec = A000000000XXX (arrima file number)
Numéro de référence individuel = C36XXXXXX
Numéro de référence fédéral = 57XXXXXX
I spoke with them when I was in that situation, they Said put anything because you will be sending them a copy anyway.

I put my individual reference number.
