Default Approximate PR medical costs?

Hi,

Can anyone give me a rough idea of how much their PR medicals cost? I've just received my instructions but I haven't worked in a few months (bad economy for geologists at the moment).

Also, has anyone ever had the problem where the only approved doctors are miles away? My closest one is in Quebec City which is 642 km from where I live so it's a 1200km return journey by car or an $800 flight (which I can't afford because of the whole economy thing)! Just wondering if anyone has ever heard of CIC temporarily approving other local doctors to conduct the medical examination...

Thanks in advance!
Cat

Highly unlikely that you can get another doctor to do it
I believe they may make exceptions in countries where there is no DMP
But in Canada that ain't gonna happen

This is from the CIC web site.

In Canada, if the nearest Panel Physician offering services in your preferred official language is located more than 250 kilometres or 4 hours from where you live, please contact the CIC Call Centre at 1-888-242-2100 to find out how to access immigration medical examination services in your preferred official language.

Thanks for the replies everyone! It's cheaper than I thought it would be (phew).

And thanks for that phone number. I missed that on the web page! I called and I can find a local doctor to do the exam but I need to give their details to CIC first. So yay at not having to travel 1200km round-trip to do it!

I read somewhere that children under 5 were excluded. Sorry, I haven't got a link because I can't remember where I read it. Maybe someone else can help out with a link...

They still need the medicals but no blood tests, no urine test and no xray.
I can't remember the age but I think it was 5 for the urine test, 10 for x rays unless there is history of TB and 13 maybe for blood tests but don't quote me on that. But age 3 and 1 will only need the general examination for the medicals. We had the medicals done November 2011 and our British born kids were 3 and 1 and needed the examination but were excluded from the rest. The Canadian baby didn't need any medicals.
If you ring one of the Panel Physicians they will know the exact ages.
