Default Advice for Cancer applicant

Hi,

My in-laws were planning on joining us in Canada sometime within the next year or two but have not yet placed an application as they were waiting till we gained citizenship in the new year.

Unfortunately we have just discovered that my mother-in-law has cancer and has to go through a year at least of treatment.

They have more than enough money to retire in Canada as they own 2 businesses and about 4 properties including 1 with over 200 acres in a highly desirable area.

Under what category would it be best for them to apply and would the cancer problem be a problem, should she wait till her treatment is finished or will this make no difference?

Many thanks for your help

Impossible to even guess under what category (other than being sponsored) they may qualify as you didn't provide any relevant information. There is no Retiree category anymore in Canadian immigration programs, so they must qualify in one of economic classes (Skilled Workers or Business) if you are not sponsoring them in Family class.

Nobody can give you any answer in respect to medical question - the only way to find out is to apply and undergo medicals during the process.

It's not that nobody cares, but maybe no-one knows enough to tell you anything definite! I am sorry to hear your mother is ill though, and from that point of view I should think it would depend on the type of cancer and its predicted prognosis including the likely cost of treatment.

The time when it's likely to be a problem is if they foresee a substantial drain on the health services in Canada, so if she has reports from her specialist saying it is treated and she is clear, or giving a likely good prognosis obviously that would act in her favour.

I hope one of the "experts" will be able to advise on your best course of action. Maybe you'd be advised to seek out an immigration lawyer for advice on this one?

Good Luck

Can't help for Canada, but there are health policies for Australian immigration concerning former cancer patients as to which persons will meet the health criteria, which ones will not, and then there is always a grey area between the two.

CIC may have similar rules and policie - perhaps a Canadian lawyer or immigration consultant who specialises in medical issues may be able to help.

Also, as Andrew says, you need to have identified a specific visa type for which they may be eligible before you can even start to think about health issues.
